Magic Warming Mushroom Miso Broth

I call it a magic broth because it just feels and tastes so comforting, and I find it soothing, and yes, healing. A fast broth to prepare, full of goodness and a wonderful full flavour, making it a great convalescing soup, as well as a great starter for that rich main course meal. It’s ideal as an autumn/winter starter preceding vegan roasts or other similar dishes that require some effort – one often thinks ‘What […]

Vegan Shakshuka – ‘Breakfast In Israel’

This recipe is dedicated to the people of Israel who have embraced veganism, and to my good friend Gary Yourofsky, who is touring Israel for a second time this month, and who has helped to enlighten so many people in Israel to the benefits of veganism. This recipe is a daily staple in Israel, very often eaten for breakfast, or as a light lunch.  Its origins are thought to have been rooted in Africa – […]

Cream of Asparagus, Leek & Parsley Soup

This is such a wonderful combination of ingredients.  Although we are still at the very hot tail end of summer – and summers here are very long – I needed to imagine that autumn was on its way, as a few clouds have shown their faces, and we’ve already had some much-needed rain.  Anyway, this soup took only minutes to prepare, and it’s a winner. I shall make this again, and again, and again, and […]

Express Cozy Chowder

This is a fast and easy to make Chowder – I made it because it was a little cold this evening, and I fancied something a little different. This is the best vegetable-based chowder ever, and will be a staple amongst those wishing to serve something very flavourful and comforting – ideal towards the end of the winter – to mark the end of it, and the beginning of the new season ahead.  My last […]

Soup For The Soul – Stew For The Heart

This creation was a revelation in the art of wholesome pick me ups, warm me all, fill me up combinations – a soup and stew marriage, that embraces and pampers the senses.  Because it was almost impossible to define as either one or the other, it is one of those ‘twin recipes’ – but who cares about that ?  Taste and texture are always my No.1 priority, together with colour, passion – and a sense […]

Split Pea, Spinach & Leek Soup

This three green soup is sublime – truly.  Packed with nutrients, it’s going to be a regular in this household.  I mean, what could be better when one not only eats for pleasure, but also enjoys health benefits at the same time.  A twist of lime (now almost one of my trademarks) puts this soup in a league of its own.  Make it, taste it, share it, and most of all, enjoy it ! Serves […]

Smoked Eggplant/Aubergine & Lemon Pepper Soup

I make no secret of the fact that this soup is inspired by the infamous Baba Ganoush – the Middle Eastern dip.  I love the smoky taste that permeates the flesh of the eggplant, and the contrasting flavours of the lemon.  This soup is so satisfying, warming and tasty – a perfect and impressive low fat soup for all occasions, and pretty easy to make too ! Serve with croutons, or crunchy bread of your […]

Leek, Zucchini & Fresh Parsley Soup With A Lemon Twist

This soup is simply delicious and so simple to make – and the rewards lie in the taste.  My young daughter loved it, and she is a fussy eater, I have to say.  The combination of ingredients result in a very satisfying taste and texture – one of those ‘must repeat’ soups.  Gentle, yet full of flavour.  Enjoy with some crunchy brown bread.  Nutritious and delicious in a bowl. Serves 3 to 4 as a […]

Cream of Coconut & Broccoli Soup

I have developed a temporary fixation with coconut over the last 3 days – I love the flavour with a passion.  Anyway, dinner dawned faster than I thought, and as luck had it, the combination of ingredients that made up this soup were far further in the yummy zone than I had expected.  I would probably go as far as to say that this is my favourite broccoli soup ever.  And super fast to make.  […]
