Lemon Ginger Vegetable Soup
Heart-warming, diet friendly, vegan, gluten-free and easy one pot soup. Flavorful, refreshing and nourishing with the right amount of spice and ingredients readily available in your pantry refrigerator.
Terrific way to include health-giving colourful fresh vegetables in your diet plan for a light dinner/ lunch or as an appetizer/ starter. This method of cooking is ideal to skip the store bought broth for less sodium consumption. Baby bella or Shiitake mushrooms adds more flavor, but it can be substituted with any mushroom of your choice (like Button, Oyster, Cremini, Paddy Straw, Enoki or Nameko).
More vibrant vegetable options are Snow peas, Bok choy, Broccoli, Lemongrass, Zucchini and Leeks. It's a great way to add more vitamins to your diet while you empty your vegetable box in your refrigerator.
For non-vegetarians, this soup is versatile and can be prepared with some boneless chicken chunks, preferably the white meat (chicken breast) for some protein. The soy sauce can be substituted with fish sauce.
This recipe is very simple and easy, in short if you know to boil water, you are good to go.
