Reducing salt intake is very easy. You just need to top up on other flavourful and aromatic ingredients and you will barely notice the missing salt. Not only that, you also need to understand that a low-sodium diet does not mean just salt – you need to also reduce other high-sodium ingredients.


In that sense, the Carrot and Bell Pepper Soup is a wonderful choice, made entirely with nutritious, low-sodium ingredients like carrot, capsicum and tomatoes. While tomato adds tang and carrot adds volume to the soup, herbs and pepper add punch to it. Enjoy this peppy low-sodium treat to keep blood pressure under control.

I love capsicum in any form... and in this soup the use of coloured capscium with tomatoes and carrot gives it an eye cateching colour... the herbs and chilli flakes give this soup an Oriental touch and perk up the flavour further.
