This soup is not just easy and tasty but also convenient… since you can make it using whatever vegetables you can lay your hands on. You can even replace vegetable stock with the vegetable stock cubes available in the market. A light soup full of the goodness of tofu and vegetables, it is low in calories and high in iron content. The unique blend of flavours, including the lemongrass highlight, is characteristic of thai cooking. Soya sauce is high in sodium and hence i have used only 1 tsp, to be on the safe side, especially for those who have high blood pressure. Tofu is very good for health, and is high in all nutrients; so, wherever possible, try replacing paneer with tofu.
