Thai Inspired Vegetable Soup

Soups are easy to make and can make any meal more complete as well. You can easily create difference by introducing different herbs and vegetables. In this recipe I have added lemon grass and Kaffir lime leaves to infuse a Thai aroma. I have also added a selection of light but nutritionally enriched vegetables; tofu and mushrooms as a source of protein. Throw some noodles or garnish with bean sprouts to add more texture to your soup. Enjoy this light and clear soup!
