Advance New Year Wishes to everyone! Start the New Year with healthy recipes just like this soup!
This is a very healthy soup perfect for the weather. The brothy soup filled with veggies and some millet noodles makes a wholesome and nutritious soup. Did I tell you that this is zero oil soup? Yes, no oil to butter! zero fat soup! This soup is vegan too!
Garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, pepper, and lime )of course salt too) add immense flavor to this simple soup. This soup can rejuvenate you! A perfect detox soup! Whether you are sick, or getting better, or fit, this soup is perfect for any meal.
This soup is made with millet noodles. If you can't find millet noodles, replace with thin rice noodles. Millet and rice noodles cook very quickly. So the procedure is same. If you do not have any of these, replace with thin flour noodles and adjust cooking time accordingly. This soup will be very delicious!
This nutritious soup can be prepared easily. All it take is at the maximum 15 minutes cooking time and 15 prep time, that is cutting veggies. Cabbage, bell pepper, and carrots are easy to chop and provide excellent nutrition. Bring a pot of water to boil and start chopping. This could save a few minutes of time while making this soup.
The heat comes from the black pepper and chopped Thai green chiles. While serving add a few slices of Thai chiles and some ginger slices for extra flavor boost! Serve with optional lime wedges to adjust taste. Black Tea Noodles is a similar broth based noodles but flavored with hot tea, and another favorite one of ours! If you like creamier soup, try this Vegan Curried Cabbage Soup and Thai Coconut Curry Noodles made with coconut milk and flour noodles.
