Lettuce and Cucumber soup (Microwave)

L


ettuce soup? Really? What will you do if you have 3 heads of lettuce sitting in your fridge and you don't want to waste it. Quite frankly, we were amazed  at how how good it tasted. I was thinking that it will taste bland so I included vegetable stock with seasoning. That worked great!


Ingredients
Chopped Letuce leaves - 1 cup
Sliced Cucumber - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1 tsp
Cornflour - 1 tbsp
Salt - per taste
Pepper powder - per taste
Vegetable stock - 1 cube


Method


  • Take the lettuce leaves in a microwave safe bowl and put in the microwave for 1 minutes.
  • Add butter and cucumber slice in the bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Take out and mix well.
  • Microwave high for 2 minutes.
  • Dissolve the cornflour in 1 cup water.
  • Blend all this in a mixer.
  • Crush vegetable stock cube in a microwave safe bowl. Add 1 cup water and microwave for 3 minutes stirring in between.
  • Add vegetable stock and the blended mixture to the bowl, add salt and pepper and microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
