Lunch Box Idea 2 / Thermos preferred / Microwave / Kids / Adults / Mild Soup / Capsicum / Red Pepper
|1 no||Red bell pepper|
|2 cup||Stock (chicken or vegetable)|
|½ tsp||Black pepper powder|
|½ tsp||Salt (or to taste)|
|1 tbsp||Olive oil|
Heat oil in a pan, fry the chopped onions and minced garlic along with chopped red bell pepper for 4 minutes over medium flame. Fry till the onion turns translucent and the pepper browned lightly. Now add the chicken / vegetable stock of your choice along with salt and let simmer for 5 minutes. Swtich off and let cool. Now using your blender or processor puree the content and add pepper powder and simmer again for few minutes. Choose a garnish of your choice either parsly or coriander and serve.
For lunch box preaparation: Would suggest you buy a small thermos9link provide below) or you have to choose warming in a microwave. Once the soup is simmered immediately pour in your thermos, close with lid tightly and pack with a small hard variety bread roll (Italian / Sour dough / Soup sticks / French Bagutte) for dipping.
Make it Veg or Non veg style picking the approriate stock, make it rich by roasting it in butter, garnish with little cream, throw in some cooked beans or shredded chicken to make it really filling.
Chicken Stock – Store bought chicken stock or consomme or cubes will work. I prefer fresh homemade stock. For basic chicken stock, heat up 3 cups of water with cubed onions(1), carrots(1), beans(3), celery(1), few cloves, minced ginger(1″), crushed garlic(2), Chicken parts(bones, neck, legs, thighs and some meat), peppercorns and salt. Pressure cook upto 3 whistles, let the steam release, filter the stock, cool and refrigerate. Ignore chicken and use the rest for vegetable stock.
Yield: 1 adult serving.
