Simple Green soup

DSCF0382 DSCF0391 Nothing beats a bowl of soup to warm the cockles of your heart on a cold rainy evening. Soup is one of my favourite dishes to make. I find there’s something very therapeutic about making a big pot of soup: gently chopping all the ingredients, stirring the soup and leaving it to do it magic, then finally blending it to silky smooth perfection. One of the great things about soup, is that it can be frozen in individual portions so it makes an easy last minute meal when you are tired or the fridge is empty. This recipe has become my staple green soup – it’s light, nourishing and bursting with goodness, and it feels like a good way to begin my blog.  It’s served here with a drizzle of walnut oil and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.

These gluten free cookies are lovely to have for when friends drop around for a cup of tea, for the school lunchbox, a little snack at work or for something to munch when watching a movie – they are an adaptation on my lovely friend Gail’s recipe and they are lovely, light and very yummy and crunchy!

This recipe makes about 24 small biscuits.


200ml egg whites, approximately 6 egg whites
1 cup almond meal
1 cup hazelnut meal
1 cup desiccated coconut, sugar and preservative free
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla powder
1 teaspoon baking soda


Pre-heat oven to 180oC and line with baking paper.

In a big glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites till light and fluffy. You don’t need to get to the meringue stiffness, just make sure there’s no liquid left in the bowl.

Add all the other ingredients and combine well…

‘If others can do it, why can’t you?’

I suck at writing.
I am not able to articulate words well.
I am not your ‘normal’ introverts who can blurt out words and write them down easily.
Those being said, this is 2014. I gotta challenge myself, do something out of my comfort zone.
I have taken the challenge to write a blog post once a week.
That sounds reasonable doesn’t it.

And meet me there, bundles of flowers,
We wait through the hours of cold
Winter shall howl at the walls,
Tearing down doors of time.
