Asian inspired easy and lite chilled summer soup recipe with strawberries and lemongrass.



Ingredients for Stock

  • 1 teaspoon pectin powder (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Grated Zest of one lemon
  • 1 stalk lemongrass chopped
  • 2 cups water

Other ingredients

  • 250 grams strawberries
  • 2 tablespoon Sugar

For the Garnish

  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Mint Sprigs


  1. Dice the strawberries into small chunks and combine 2 tablespoon of sugar and let it macerate while we prepare the stock.
  2. Combine all the stock ingredients together in a saucepan and let it come to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally so the sugar dissolves. Once the mixture comes to a rolling boil, remove the pan from heat.
  3. Place a sieve over the bowl of strawberries and add the hot lemongrass stock. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6-8 hours. Leaving it overnight is fine. The flavors develop over time.
  4. Garnish: Garnish the soup with thinly sliced strawberries and mint sprigs.
