Lettuce is an unexplored treasure! Not many know that it is a very good source of iron. Here is a creamy soup of lettuce thickened using finely chopped cauliflower, which not only imparts a creamy texture but also balances the flavour of lettuce well. The use of cauliflower also does away with the use of milk in this recipe! Chopped onions and pepper add to the flavour and aroma of this comforting and iron-rich Lettuce and Cauliflower Soup.

I''m from an Indian Brussels and I somehow ended up with lettuce in my Fridge which I never tried in anything other than salad. When I searched for a nice recipe with lettuce came across this soup. I just made it and it made my day😋😋😋.. Thanks for this wonderful recipe...

   We have not tried to freeze it. It has onions as well it will go bad and plus it will lose its nutrients and taste may differ.

A healthy soup with minimal ingredients. I agree iceberg lettuce is the best to make this perfect low cal soup.
