Pepper and Basil Soup
This is a simple yet flavorful soup. It is suitable for intro but can be "dressed up" and enjoyed later in the diet as well.
2 cups of meat stock
1 bell pepper (yellow or red works well)
1 handful of basil
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the pepper into pieces. Bring the meat stock to a boil, add the pepper, and cook until just tender. Add the basil leaves and cook another few minutes. Remove from heat and puree.
For variety, try using cilantro leaves instead of basil and add some lime juice. You can also try adding curry powder.
