Lemon Coriander Soup

Some soups are delightfully simple and flavoursome. Lemon coriander is one such. It is made with ingredients which are usually available at all times at home. It makes a wonderful start to a meal by teasing your taste buds but at the same time not killing your appetite. Serves 3 Recipe adapted from here WHAT…

Ajo Blanco

There are many types of cooks. Some are slow, other fast. Some follow the recipe to the T while others go with the flavour. Some measure diligently while others go with their estimate. I always wanted to be the latter but my estimates are so off the actual number that it is not funny. I…

Oats Soup

There are days when you run around with a million things to do with no time for a coffee or a meal and then there are days when things miraculously work out and you finish hours worth of work in minutes and actually have time to sit back and relax. When you chance upon such…

Spinach Soup

I am actually surprised that I could do over 15 soups before I came to spinach. Spinach is an integral part of many mixed veg soups which I have been postponing because I never went to the store in time to get fresh spinach. In the evenings, they would look so worn out and sad,…

Apple and Almond Soup

I am not a huge fan of cooking fruits preferring to have them raw as they are supposed to be. But sometimes exceptions need to be made, especially when you have a beautiful symphony of apples with tomatoes, gooseberry and carrots topped generously with almonds. Exception accepted. I had a couple of apples sitting on…

Beetroot Soup

We can’t have a soup theme and not make beetroot soup. I was contemplating the popular Borscht Soup but due to many reasons (mostly laziness) I decided against it, at least for now. I love to eat beetroot but making it not my favorite task. It gets its colour all over my kitchen which sports…

Pea & Mint Soup

I have missed my peas terribly. Fresh peas were never available in Malaysia and I have a grudge against frozen ones. Don’t ask me why. It is a grudge, it is not supposed to be based on cold logic and reasonable arguments. Since they are my favorite and I could not have them for the…

Chunky Vegetable Soup

I am writing this post from inside a box. The house is full of them and there are stuff all around. The daughter finds it highly amusing and is jumping in and out of the boxes and falling into piles of clothes. I have 50 boxes and I am just half way through and most…

Cucumber Soup

Does it ever happen to you that you want something out of context, something no one else would want in a particular situation? The exception is wanting to watch TV or play the day before exams. That everyone wants. But suddenly, I was hit with this craving for cold soup at this time of the…

Sweet Corn Soup

There are reasons why some dishes are termed classic. My theory is that they are classic because they are simple to make yet taste like the food for the Gods and can be made by novices like me too. One such is, of course, a sweet corn soup. I have had it countless times in…
