I get very excited when I think about this thick and flavourful soup. The roasted tomato flavours are more intense and interesting than an ordinary boiled soup and so easy to make. It’s ideal for a midweek meal or a comforting family weekend meal.
Hierdie groentesop is propvol Italiaanse geure. Die groente is in growwe stukkies gesny wat dit ’n regte koesterkos-sop maak. Die kombinasie van tamatie, soetrissie, eiervrug, ’n bietjie komyn en die kruie is ’n heerlike wintersete. Sit dit as vleislose ete voor of roer bone, kekerertjies, repies gaar hoender of spekrepies as proteïen by.
A soup as a filling meal-in-one to warm you up on a cold winter’s night. The barley thickens the soup and gives it a lovely creaminess. I always get excited when everyday ingredients combine into such a hearty meal. The pork bangers add a delicious taste and a touch of sour cream brings it all together.
Everyone knows a butternut soup and there are many variations. This is definitely my favourite way to prepare this popular soup. Roasting the butternut with spices before blending it, enhances the natural sweetness of the butternut and adds a nuttiness to the flavour. The chickpeas are a great source of protein and also delicious when seasoned and roasted with spices. This soup is equally good as a family meal or to serve for a special meal.
Boontjiesop is pure Suid-Afrikaanse kos. ’n Stomende bakkie sop vir die winter is genoeg om hart en siel (en jou maag) te vul. Dit verg so bietjie beplanning om die boontjies eers te week, maar die geurigheid van die sop is absoluut die moeite werd. Dis ’n eenvoudige kombinasie van bekende bestanddele, ‘n maaltyd op sy eie en regtig vullend.
A pie is the ultimate comfort food. In this recipe I use bacon, which is quite salty, but the rest of the seasonings are all natural. There isn’t a lot of sour cream in the sauce, but just enough to make it creamy and moreish. Keep moderation in mind when it comes to portion sizes and eat it with a big green salad!
For this rich and comforting lamb shank recipe, a tomato base is used with mustard, fresh herbs and lemon – always a delicious combination.
The hearty stew uses basic ingredients, with the addition of whole star anise to give it an aromatic flair. Star anise is delicious with both carrots, cabbage and beef or pork. One could easily play with different spices to ring the changes. Cumin seeds or even whole cloves and all spice berries are good options, or use a Chinese five spice mixture instead.
Perfect to warm your heart and tummy. The combination of ingredients in this vegetarian hotpot, like butternut, carrots and potatoes with aromatic spices, chickpeas and coconut milk is a hearty and comforting meal.
Roast chicken is such a comforting meal. Use this easy and very flavourful recipe – the combination of balsamic vinegar, honey and lemon with fresh herbs is always a winner. The roasted lemon rind is just so delicious! Use any of the suggested ways below to make the most of any leftover chicken.
