Bean & veggie soup

Bean & veggie soup

This is my version of an Italian minestrone with beans and lots of veggies – fabulous to make this weekend! The beans are soaked overnight and then precooked before adding the fresh veggies. This way the beans are soft and the veggies don’t overcook, but still have some texture and lots of colour.

Bacon & potato soup

Bacon & potato soup

Soup is homely, comfort food and this recipe will quickly become a winter favourite, not just because of the flavour, but also the chunky texture. Bacon and potato always work well together, but make sure you remove any excess bacon fat, otherwise it can settle on top of the soup. Also take care when seasoning, as bacon is salty. Potatoes don’t freeze well as they become glassy. Rather keep leftovers for lunch the next day.

Quick & easy Thai red curry

This Thai red curry is really quick and easy, hence the name. The curry paste you use will determine the flavour and spiciness of the meal. Replace the chicken fillets in this recipe for prawns, pork or tofu if preferred. This recipe is perfect for the cold weather we’re having!

Asian chicken noodle soup

A warming chicken broth with deep Asian-inspired flavours and veggies is ideal as a comforting winter meal. Miso paste is a well-known, nutritious Japanese seasoning made from fermented soy beans. It sounds a little different but is so flavourful. Once you try it, you’ll want to add it to everything.

In South Africa we love to braai! So, it’s great to have a good marinade on hand. This curry marinade will be as good on chicken, pork or beef. You can even make delicious sosaties (kebabs) with this marinade. The perfect recipe to make for the public holiday tomorrow!
