Despite playing an important role in the meal, to kindle one’s appetite and set the expectations for the coming meal, most people settle with simple tomato or mixed veg soups! Why do that, when there is a delectable variety? Try this Spinach, Lettuce and Spring Onion Soup for an option that is flavourful and nutritious. The use of iceberg lettuce as one of the main ingredients is indeed a specialty of this Vitamin A and iron-rich soup. And so is the unique flavour imparted by the nutmeg!

Just loved the soup... no straining at all and cooked in a pressure cooker to maintain all the nutrients. In all a very healthy recipe.
