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…

Bottle Gourd Soup

I was never a huge fan of bottle gourd for most of my life and I didn’t know any recipes for this vegetable except halwa (which was yummmm) and kofta which I have never tried because when I wanted a kofta it was usually the one with malai.ย Then I discovered this bottle gourd juice and…

Tomato Soup

There are days when one craves for the simple, the easy and the yummy, all of which is brought together in a classic tomato soup. In my pre-blogging avatar (which wasn’t too long ago) my recipe for tomato soup was to take off the skin, puree the tomatoes and heat it with some salt and…

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…

Egg Drop Soup

Long long ago I tried and successfully made a tomato egg drop soup. Then I lost the link to the recipe and am looking for it ever since. When I decided on the soup theme for this mega marathon I started looking for that recipe again but I am yet to succeed. But in the…

Mushroom Almond Soup

When I made the broccoli soup yesterday, I kinda blanched way too many almonds and I knew if I didn’t use them at the earliest, in will forget and it will be discovered years later by my grandchildren. So I figured I could do another almond based soup and promptly tick that box. That’s when…

Broccoli Almond Soup

My usual mantra is ‘if there is broccoli in the dish, then I love it’. Love at first taste happened about 15 years ago at Mainland China when I slurped on broccoli soup and I have been hooked ever since.  Everytime I buy broccoli, I plan to make a soup but invariably there is pasta…

Lentil Ginger Soup

If I ever get into a situation where I can have only one flavour to cook with, I would take ginger. It’s simply my favourite ingredient and finds its way into almost all my dishes.  Today’s soup is a delectable combination of lentils, ginger and vegetables. My guess is this recipe should work with most…

Spring Onion Soup

  I have one of my favorite soups for today. Ever since I came across this recipe, I have been making it multiple times and surprisingly the husband likes it too. The nice part of it is the minimal ingredients required for deliciousness, most of which are usually available in the pantry at all times….
