Lemon and coriander soup

Posted on August 14, 2009. Filed under: Home Remedies, Starter | Tags: , , , , , |

An aromatic and healthy soup. This is an interesting deviation from the regular clear vegetable soup. Fragrant lemon grass makes this clear soup very appetizing and the coriander lends its own district flavour and colour.

Cooking Time : 15 mins.

Serves 4.

For the stock
2 to 3 pieces lemon grass, washed
1 to 2 chillies, slit

¼ cup mushrooms, sliced
¼ cup cabbage, finely chopped
2 spring onions, sliced
1 teaspoon oil
salt and pepper to taste
For the garnish
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
1 teaspoon lemon juice
For the stock
1. Combine the lemon grass and chillies in a pan with 6 cups of water and bring to a boil.
2. Simmer till it reduces to approx. 4 cups. Strain and keep the stock aside discarding the lemon grass and chillies.
How to proceed
1. Heat the oil in a pan and add the carrots, mushrooms, cabbage and spring onions and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes.
2. Add the stock, salt and pepper and bring to a boil
