Lemon Coriander Soup

As the weather is getting colder, we crave for something hot to eat or drink, and what’s better than a yummy delicious soup? I am not a very soupy person but one of my all time favourites is hot and sour chicken soup. But I wanted to try something different this time and was in no mood to try the good old Pumpkin soup. So my craving to try something new and different found me a recipe of Lemon coriander soup. The name itself felt so good 🙂 I am a big fan of coriander, so Lemon Coriander soup it was. I made a few changes according to my taste and with whatever I had at home.

Its a very healthy soup made with vegetable stock, lemon juice , mix vegetables and loads of coriander. I bet you will fall in love with this easy peasy flavourful soup 🙂
