Suddenly the weather changed in Bay Area. From 2 days, we were affected by the Heat waves. Do you believe the heat burnt my flowers in less than 6 hours. Could you imagine the outdoor weather? Well, we just relay to our Air conditioner and not feel having any hot or spicy food. I wanted to have something cool. So, I prepared something light … few days back, I book marked Richa’s Soup to be relished for summer. But it was time to make it immediately. The carrot and orange soup was perfect to cool down the heat and our body. We just enjoyed with some homemade Cheddar garlic biscuit to complete the meal. Variation: omitted garlic added ginger and I kept in my fridge to turn into cold soup. Thank you Richa to share such an easy, healthy, tasty and colorful soup. For the biscuit I followed the recipe given in flour packet for " Buttermilk biscuit" cut into half and added my variations: cheddar and garlic
Recipe for Carrot & Orange soup: Check here Recipe source: Richa @asdearassalt.blogspot.com
Recipe for Cheddar garlic biscuit:
All purpose self-raising flour: 1 1/4 cup
Sugar: 1 tsp
Baking soda: ¼
Shortening but I used butter: ¼
Buttermilk: ¾ cup
Cheddar cheese: ½ cup shredded or more if u wish
Garlic: 2 cloves minced
Heat the oven for 450 F. In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients, cut the butter into flour and mix well. Add the garlic and cheddar now pour the buttermilk and mix until it forms dough. If u wants a round shape, flour the work surface and sprinkle some flour on the dough, roll into 1 inch thickness and cut into any shape. Or take a spoon full of the dough and drop into cookie sheet. Bake it in oven for 10 to 12 min until the top turn brown. I am sending this entry to MBP event started by coffee and this soup & salad MBP is hosted by Ragaa .
