Makes: 3 to 4 servings
Total Time: 30 Minutes
200 grams cup broccoli florets
4 to 5 baby corn, halved and sliced long

1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin wedges

To begin making the Vegetable Clear Soup with Lemon Grass Recipe, add 4-5 cups water to a sauce pan, add the lemon grass roots to the water. Turn on your heat to medium high, and bring to a boil. Boil the lemon grass for about 5 minutes or so, to release the flavors. The color of the water should be a light green when you’re finished.
Once you notice the flavors of the lemon grass have come into the water, discard the lemon grass, but keep the water. Add the vegetables into the lemon grass water and bring it to a boil until the vegetables are slightly tender. When boiling the vegetables in water, they release their own flavors adding to the taste of the soup.
Turn off the heat and add in the salt, sugar, lemon juice, basil leaves and crushed black pepper. Taste to make sure the flavors are right. You may need to add more lime juice depending on how sour your limes are.
Serve the Vegetable Clear Soup with Lemon Grass for a quick and healthy weeknight dinner or for those cold winter nights.
Note: You can additionally spice up the soup with a little tobasco sauce or chilli vinegar.
