mulligatawny soup

Mulligatawny soup. Haunting flavours of lentils, Indian spice, ginger, garlic and lemon. So tasty. Make this when you want something different. Something out of the ordinary. When your main course flavours are assertive. It doesn’t have to be an Indian dinner. Leave the chicken out and you have a nice “cream of” soup without the cream. Or serve it before a curried dish to add a bit of western structure to your meal. Doesn’t matter. It will not disappoint.  Read More

turkey noodle soup

There’s no single killer turkey noodle soup recipe. No rock your world – this is the best thing ever. I’ve looked. It’s all pretty much the same. Variations on a theme. I have my own variation on the theme. Mine is about mouthfeel. The difference between a watery broth and unctuous, oh my god this is amazing broth. That small tweak is why I’m going to litter the internet with yet another turkey noodle soup recipe. Sorry to waste your time…
