Time to spice things up, A twist on an old classic soup. If you like Thai flavours of ginger, coconut cream and coriander well this is a simple yet tasty dish to help change-up the everyday pumpkin soup recipe.
Another Winter soup recipe for you, this one I have to admit isn’t one I’ve grown up eating. I am more used to the Italian chunky soups like minestrone but I thought I would give this soup a go and see what I thought. One thing I first learnt was it was made with split peas not green peas. While you can see recipes that use green peas traditionally it’s actually split peas. It also uses ham hock to flavour the soup then shred the meat and add to the soup. I have to say it wasn’t one of my favourite soups ever but a nice change nevertheless.
Continuing to use up the endless amounts of basil leaves it was sauce making time and the last of the sister in-laws eggplants. I decided to make the family classic eggplant parmigiana.
This is one of those traditional recipe that has been made in our family for generations like most Italian families and now I will share with you. Though the traditional version is a little different in every family and well I have opted to bake my eggplants first instead of frying them for a healthier option.
I had this beautiful whole cauliflower staring at me for a good 10mins hmm what to make with you?? I only had a short time to prepare something before I did the school run so I had to think fast. I had some ideas come to mind vegetable curry, cauliflower rice, even what’s been trending at the moment baked whole cauliflower.
With only minutes to decide I went for a quick cauli crust pizza base. As it was something I could quickly whip up prepare veggies and bake when I got home from the afternoon rush.
It is super fast only takes 15 mins in the oven once topped so perfect for those days when time gets the better of you. My kids turn their nose up at cauliflower so this was an adults meal for us instead I had some bakery prepared pizza bases from our local bakery and they enjoyed topping theirs for themselves.
