Light Coconut Soup
The low-calorie soup can not only be spooned out without hesitation by anyone who wants to lose a few pounds - even those who want to do something good for their blood lipid values are right on target. Because the low content of cholesterol and saturated fatty acids helps to keep the cholesterol level in balance. The spring vegetable asparagus provides besides by potassium and asparagine acid for a balanced liquid household, i.e. redundant water is excreted.
The season for green asparagus is unfortunately short. It is therefore best to freeze a supply. Just wash and clean the spears, but do not precook them, and use them later directly from the freezer. The ingredients for the light coconut soup are usually available in an Asian grocery store or in a supermarket with a well-stocked international department.
