Vegan Red Capsicum & Moongdal Soup

Soup is an excellent meal for dieting people, a bowl of warm soup is definitely very filling and satisfying while the weather is down outside.Soups and salads have their important place in our daily menu,yes i couldnt stop myself saying this phrase again and again. I do often soups for our dinner.My today's soup goes under the list low-carb meals, yes this soup goes for one of the low carb vegetable Red capsicum and its completely potato free, cream free. I replaced the potato and cream with yellow moongdal in this soup, usually i'll add potatoes to make my soups thick but trust me moongdal works wonder for making this delicious soup. Obviously this soup is completely vegan and definitely a satisfying meal for people dieting under low-carb diet .

Its been a while i want to give a try to a soup with red capsicum and yellow moongdal combination, finally i did this beautiful comforting soup with this pair few days back for our dinner. This vegan and eye pleasing soup makes an excellent dinner if served simply with a sandwich, but however this soup goes for this week's blogging marathon as i chosed low-carb meals for this week's theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#42. Sending to Pari's Only - Gluten Free Cooking.
