Chinese BBQ Duck, Mushroom & Noodle Soup

Chinese BBQ Duck, Mushroom & Noodle Soup

One of the fast foods I love and crave the most is a good Asian style noodle soup. We have a local place at two locations within a 10km radius and if I am hungover, cold, hot, happy, sad or all these combined, I make a beeline and order either the Chinese BBQ Duck...
Potato, Cauliflower & Fennel Soup

Potato, Cauliflower & Fennel Soup

Well wan’t this just a big old bowl of comfort. A pimped up version of potato and leek soup, purely because I had half a cauliflower and a fennel bulb in the fridge that needed to be used and I loathe waste. I roasted the fennel and cauliflower for maximum...
Curry Chicken Noodle Soup

Curry Chicken Noodle Soup

I could taste this Curry Chicken soup recipe for days in my imagination and I can so remember that taste of good old curry powder right back to my Nanna’s cooking when I was a child. That heady smell of spices just takes me right back. However, food has come a...
Hoi Sin Duck, Asian Mushroom & Egg Noodle Soup

Hoi Sin Duck, Asian Mushroom & Egg Noodle Soup

I would have to say, Duck is probably my favourite meat.  I think the reason why is that we don’t have it very often, so it is a bit of a treat.  I love Duck of any variety and in any cuisine, however Asian style is the true winning cuisine for Duck, in my eyes....

Potato, Grilled Corn & Ham Hock Chowder

French Onion Soup with Blue Cheese Croutons

French Onion Soup with Blue Cheese Croutons

This classic French soup has been given a slight Em’s Food makeover as I was unable to get the traditional Gruyere cheese that is the norm. A person of French origin may curse me (Sacre` Bleu!) for tampering with an age old recipe however I had my heart set on...
Spiced Carrot & Red Lentil Soup

Spiced Carrot & Red Lentil Soup

*Revised Recipe* On a very recent trip to my gorgeous friends house, she served me up a delicious red lentil soup.  We didn’t really go into what was in it as I was oohing and aahing as it really hit the spot.  It also gave me the idea for this recipe!  This...
Roasted Garlic & Parsnip Soup with Chorizo & Parsley Oil

Roasted Garlic & Parsnip Soup with Chorizo & Parsley Oil

Smooth, velvety soup is always a must in the colder months.  The creamy subtle flavour of slow roasted garlic paired with sweet parsnips, salty chorizo and a drizzle of fresh parsley oil made this one a definite stand out.  An all-rounder.  10/10. Prep time:  20...
Pea & Two Types of Ham Soup with Mint Sour Cream

Pea & Two Types of Ham Soup with Mint Sour Cream

I have always been a fan of taking an old fave and pimping it up to become a modern classic.  Pea and Ham soup has been around for eons and I thought it was high time it had a little makeover.  Not too much has changed, the foundations remain as flavoursome and...
Super Quick Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup
