A soup is often served as an appetizer or invalid diet. Nonetheless, you can make many different kinds of soups with vegetables, greens and even fruits. Soups are especially soothing to your body in winter. You can make a meal by serving soup with buttered bread! Lemon-coriander soup is one of the simple and tasty soups that you can make in no time. It has the tangy taste of lemon and gentle flavor of cilantro. Here’s the recipe.
