Roast Tomato & Fennel Soup

Roast Tomato & Fennel Soup

Ok, we are heading out of soup season but for me, the slightest hint of cool weather and I am back into it.  I’ve made this Roast Fennel & Tomato soup on two occasions now and I swear on my life, it does not get any easier than this.  It is also a...
Chicken, Wonton & Noodle Soup

Chicken, Wonton & Noodle Soup

This is my new favourite ‘Fakeaway’!  I absolutely love a Chicken, Wonton & Noodle Soup when I visit our local shopping mall as it never feels like fast food.  I think I like this version even better as I know exactly what is in it and it did feel a...

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...

Pork & Shiitake Dumplings in Shiitake Broth

Pork & Shiitake Dumplings in Shiitake Broth

On a recent trip to Beechworth in Victoria, I had the most gorgeous starter of pork dumplings in broth in a fantastic pub called The Empire Hotel.  It was rich yet light and immensely satisfying, although not too satisfying as I still managed to fit in a 300gm sirloin...
Quinoa & Green Veggie Detox Soup

Quinoa & Green Veggie Detox Soup

I will admit, I am rather partial to a few too many wines.  Most weekends.  We also lead quite busy social lives so the weekends are usually full of indulgent food, less sleep than is probably good for us and we are not getting any younger etc etc.  So, come Monday...
Moroccan Lamb, Chickpea & Carrot Soup

Moroccan Lamb, Chickpea & Carrot Soup

I absolutely love the change of seasons and by the end of summer I have a serious hankering for hearty soups and stews.  This was one hearty soup I can tell you, and so will the six humungous manboys I fed it to.  Molten lamb, protein packed chickpeas and sweet...
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...
