Lettuce Soup

IMG_20180430_101350_994

Lettuce doesn’t always have to be used for salad. Tired of eating through a whole lettuce by myself and feeling like a goat, I decided to convert it into a soup and get done with it. Here is my, clear the fridge, eat the greens recipe.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup chopped onions

2 cloves garlic (or as per your taste)

2 tablespoons olive oil

¾ teaspoon coriander powder

¼ tsp black pepper powder

¾ cup diced potato

8 cups chopped lettuce leaves (include the rib)

Salt to taste

3 cups of water

 

Method:

  1. Cook the chopped garlic and onion mixture in the oil till it softens and turns golden brown.
  2. Add the potatoes, lettuce, salt, coriander powder and pepper powder.
  3. Add 1 cup of water and cook it till the potatoes are done.
  4. Add the remaining water and let it simmer.
  5. Take it off the heat and blend the mixture.
  6. Put it back on the heat and let it simmer till it reaches the desired consistency.
  7. Garnish with mint/coriander leaves.
  8. Add some pomegranate seeds to help that acidity cut through the creaminess of the soup.
