In a saucepan, bring the stock, lemon juice, bay leaf to boil. Add the carrots, jalapeno, paneer and celery, simmer until tender.
Add the broken pasta and cook until the pasta is tender, for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove the bay leaf.
Season with salt and garnish with cilantro.
I enjoyed this warm bowl of soup with whole grain bread. Healthy, nutritious , filling and yes – quick to make.
