Here in Zambia, it is the end of winter. It is warm (except in the early morning) and pretty much insect-free. Ideal for growing most vegetables (provided one has ready access to water as it is also the dry season). With the aid of ‘just right’ sunshine, plenty of water (we live right by the […]

Asparagus Soup

A light asparagus soup, the fragrance enhanced with ginger and lime. Suitable for Diabetic, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo, and Vegan diets. This soup is a simple combination of ingredients.

A nutritious soup that is quick to prepare, makes a tasty light meal and is suitable for many diets including Low Calorie, Paleo and Vegan. Peas are one of those vegetables that are often neglected. I think this is a result of there having been fewer choices of vegetables when they were the vegetable…and often […]

Parsnip Soup

Parsnip Soup

A good Fodmap soup, great flavour with no onion or garlic. Baked parsnips have always been a favourite of mine, especially when sweet and caramelized for a roast, be it meat or a nut roast. Parsnips also make a delicious soup. The inclusion of the fennel in this soup provides an unexpected combination of flavours […]
