Lemon Coriander Soup

This is one of the tastiest soups you'd ever want. This simple soup with simple veggies has lovely, bold flavors with lemon juice and coriander aka cilantro. This soup is vegan too!

This is a copycat recipe of Sangeetha Restaurant Lemon Coriander soup. We love to have this soup back in India when we go on vacation trips. Being not just a foodie, but a home filled with foodies, we try to recreate what we love and this is no exception! This is one of our all time favorite soups. The lemon flavor comes through in every spoon and the cilantro adds to the flavor and aroma immensely.

This soup requires a few staples like carrots, cabbage, ginger, garlic, beans, corn, cilantro, green onions, cornstarch, and of course lemon. Bell pepper can also be used. The veggies have to be very thinly chopped for easier and quick cooking. The cornstarch helps in thickening the soup. I do not prefer a very thick soup in this combination. Adjust as per requirement. The cilantro and lemon can't be replaced as they are the stars of the recipe. 

This soup can be made easily and the prep time for veggies is about 10 minutes. Once you have the veggies, ready, this soup can be made in the time you take to blink! Serve with some garlic toast or any bread to make a satisfying meal.

Lemon is a versatile fruit that can be used in both savory and sweet recipes, from appetizer, to drink, to desserts. Here are some yummy lemon recipes from the blog.
