Bone Broth Ramen

This Bone Broth Ramen feels like a labour of love. Not a terribly complicated one (like love tends to be but that is a whole other story and post for an entirely different blog!) but it does take more than 24 hours to get to the end result. But the result is a nourishing bowl of goodness which is comforting and slurpily delicious.   I am also aware that I am taking a huge creative license in calling it Ramen…

Vegan Kale and Coconut Soup

The idea behind this Kale Turmeric Coconut Soup was to create a dish as healthy and nutrious as possible. Not just healthy and vegan but really delicious as well. And it worked a charm and perfect timing while we are in the middle of Cape Town winter.

All those ingredients are filled with nutritional values that are through the…

I have not posted a single soup recipe this winter and have been searching for inspiration for a while now but could not find anything that really grabbed me. That was until Cherie Antrobus came to the rescue. I spent last weekend in Cradock as a guest at the Schreiner: Karoo Writer’s Festival.

When the chef came out during the meal we commented on how good the soup was and her response was that it’s because it was made with love. It remains one of my favourite food memories and words I always remember when I cook. I love soup as a…

If you serve it hot, some toast with garlic butter will be great. Cold, I think some melba toast with a dollop of cream cheese sprinkled with chives will be just perfect.   Print Yum Balsamic Roasted Beetroot Soup Ingredients1…

I was once told that South Africans have quite an obsession with butternut and with the last few days having been cold and wet I just smiled when I decided to make a butternut soup. I wanted to keep the soup pretty rustic and did not add any cream or orange. What I did decide to do was toss the butternut in some hot curry powder and add a few cloves of garlic while the butternut was roasting and it…
