Lemon Coriander Soup ~ Your fall back option for the day when your diet plans are, well … in Soup!

Lemon coriander soup is an extremely light and fragrant oriental soup. And since we have started doing Soup Nights once in a week, that is, have just soups for dinner that night, I am always looking for various soup recipes. And when I found this one, I was attracted to it like a moth. The only problem was it wasn’t very hearty. Perfect as an appetiser, but since we are having it as meal, I just decided to throw in a few vegetables to make it more fulfilling.
