pumpkin soup with a Bali memory

pumpkin and banana soup

Back in Bali, I tasted a soup (which wasn’t even Balinese, as I found out later!) and it had an unusual flavour combination: essentially it was a savory banana soup. I tried the original recipe and failed badly, but I found a shortcut to a similar taste. The secret lies in a creamy butternut squash and coconut soup, which is the perfect base for a tiny bit of fresh banana.     pumpkin soup with a Bali memory 1 tablespoon coconut […]

curried butternut squash soup

When it comes to butternut squash soup I’m usually on the  heavily gingered spicy side. Minimalist Baker’s suggestion is subtly spiced, soul-warming, silky, coconut-infused and surprisingly different.   Curried butternut squash soup (recipe by Minimalist Baker) 1 tablespoon coconut oil 2 shallots, thinly diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 small butternut squash a pinch of sea salt and black pepper 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 400ml light coconut milk 500ml vegetable broth 2-3 tablespoons maple […]

It’s great eating outdoors. After all, everything tastes better outside. At times I love to indulge in the Victorian fashion for packing everything from mint sauce to silver teaspoons and starched napkins into a picnic basket heading to my favourite place by the lakes. However, usually I choose the simple approach for outdoor lunches. A chilled gazpacho, bread and olive oil are quickly taken to a shady place in the garden or to a sun chair on the balcony. minimalist gazpacho […]

Yotam Ottolenghi’s cookbook Plenty More and the filters of VSCOcam : two things I enjoyed spending time with during the Christmas holidays .

What I love most about a juice detox is the crazy amount of extra energy it gives to me. Well, the first two days I tend to feel a bit cold (time to have a cup of hot tea or water) and I find it difficult to see someone in my kitchen preparing seducing delicacies….grrrr. That’s  the reason why I decided to substitute at least one juice a day for a bowl of soup. All […]

Lately I discovered Russell James, England’s leading raw chef. I browsed through his food blog and watched a couple of his videos. He made me curious. What would be hiding behind his “top 10 most-loved raw recipes”? I must confess, until now raw cuisine hadn’t convinced me: too fat, too sweet, too many dates and soaked cashews. “Amazing recipe n°8”, however, caught my immediate attention. The result? Absolutely delicious! mexican tomato soup (slightly adapted) 1 cup ripe […]
