Oh boy, the weather is changing, soon the days will get shorter and I will endure my first Cape Town winter. From what I hear it can be long and cold.
Nothing says comfort than a fresh and full flavoured soup. I like my soups to be a labour of love and I am forever trying to create new flavour combinations while not messing with the classics. This week I felt a bit inspired to use strong and bold flavours after a recent bland plate of food experience.
Soup making is not difficult and you don’t have to invest hours to create elegant flavours but what you do need is some fresh and seasonal ingredients. This week saw the first of the sweet potato harvest over at Harvest of Hope and I took full advantage of this with my Sweet Potato and Miso soup which I topped with Ginger, Wakame and Sesame Prawns. I will be delivering some creamy Cauliflower Soup too which I will be serving with Cheesy Buttermilk Scones for some added indulgence.
My soups are all handmade in small batches only using natural ingredients with ZERO added to them.
Over the past 11 weeks I looked back today at some of my favourite soups and here they are:
- Red Lentil and Tomato Soup with Spiced Chickpeas
