Sunday Soup

It's been freezing all weekend. Not only did we have snow, which actually stayed for three days (and counting...) but for most of today we had temperatures of -5C (-9C! on the other side of town).


We don't get freezing temperatures that often this close to the sea.


It is of no surprise then that I have craved hot soup all day. :) The drawback was that I needed to use things I had in the kitchen as I had no intention of going to the shops. The pavements are all covered in ice...


Today's odds'n'ends soup turned out tasty enough, albeit I wouldn't say it's a new favourite. It also had some kick to it as I found a green chili pepper in the fridge. 



What else is in there:


- onion

- garlic

- courgette

- carrot

- peas

- sweetcorn

- small potato

- stock

- blob of cream cheese

- salt, pepper, paprika

- green chili pepper


some grated cheese on top.


Happy Soup Sunday!

Sunday Soup ... a bit later...

My weekend was mostly spent recovering from the long haul travel back home, unpacking, sleeping, and ... craving comfort food to get over the 30C difference in outside temperatures between Kuala Lumpur and Home.


Fall has properly arrived in Scotland and temperatures have dropped over the last couple of weeks. 


So, what better to relax with than a nice warm bowl of soup?


Of course, I also started to miss all the lovely food I came across in Malaysia and I tried to find a recipe that would tick off that craving, too. 


I finally got inspired by some recipes I found for Thai Chicken Noodle Soup - but as I could not be bothered going to the shops to buy ingredients, I improvised with what I could find at home.


This is what I ended up with:





1-2 x leeks,
1 x can of sweetcorn
1/2 x can of kidney beans,
2-3 Quorn (veggie) chicken fillets (sliced),
1/3 pouch (3 tsp) x Red Thai Curry paste
1 sachet x coconut cream
Kaffir Lime leaves
Salt, water
Rice noodles



It was delicious. :D



Also, I believe the use of leeks in this should qualify my delicious soup experiment for the task for Calan Gaeaf (Square #1 of the 16 Festive Tasks):


Tasks for Calan Gaeaf: If you’re superstition-proof, inscribe your name on a rock, toss it in a fire and take a picture to post –OR– Make a cozy wintertime dish involving leeks (the national plant of Wales) and post the recipe and pictures with your thoughts about how it turned out.
