Roasted bell pepper flax seeds soup: A hearty ,filling and finger licking delicious soup that would a perfect light lunch or dinner for those lazy days when you don’t want to cook elaborate.


After enjoying Chia seeds drinks and Sunflower seeds Breakfast recipes, my next seeds in the Cooking Carnival is Flax Seeds and I shall be posting Lunch/Dinner recipes using the flax seeds.

Flax seeds aka Linseeds are one of the super seeds and again one of the healthiest ingredient on the planet.These seeds found in two colours brown and golden or yellow.These tiny seeds contain most of the nutrient and are high in fibre and low in carbohydrates.Being a source of antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids they also help in lowering the bad cholesterol levels in the blood.Flax seeds help in weight losing and they are Gluten free too.

These seeds can be consumed whole or in ground form .Always make sure to store the ground flax in the refrigerator in airtight bags or container or else they can get rancid very soon.
