A very light and a refreshing lemony soup made with Bell Peppers and Cabbage. This is a complete meal in itself with the goodness of vegetables. Perfect for a diet control and a light dinner.
As cabbage and bell peppers are low in calories, they are a good combination for a healthy nutritious soup. The addition of kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass gives this soup a slight lemony flavour. Not to forget the tanginess that comes from the lime juice.
- 1 cup assorted bell peppers, cut into wedges
- 1 cup cabbage, cut into big chunks
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp. pepper or to taste
- 3 cups stock
- 7-8 kaffir lime leaves
- 1 stalk lemon grass, cut into three
- 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- juice of 1/2 lime
- coriander leaves to garnish
Heat oil in a pan and saute the garlic till it changes colour. Then add the rest of the ingredients (except, lime juice and coriander leaves) and bring it to a boil.
Simmer on low flame for 10-15 minutes or till the veggies turn soft but they should have a slight crunch. Discard the lime leaves and add the lime juice. Mix well and serve, hot, garnished with coriander leaves.
