Pumpkin Spicy Coconut Soup

P1030750

Cookbook: Clean Food.

Dish: Pumpkin Spicy Coconut Soup.

Ease of preparation: 4/5. It would be 5/5, but I deducted a point for having to peel the butternut pumpkin (always a serious drag to do this).

Accessibility of ingredients: 5/5 if you have acess to some Asian ingredients. This dish contained kaffir lime leaves, galangal and loads of lemongrass.

Taste: 4/5 Wonderful Thai flavours in a creamy pumpkin soup. Yeah!!!!!!

Mediterranean Pasta with Greens

I got a new bookbook yesterday and wanted to give it a try.

Cookbook: Clean Food.

Ease of preparation: 5 out of 5

Accessibility of ingredients:3 out of 5. The recipe called for kale, which we don’t have in Thailand. I substituted spinach. It also contains mirin. It’s a bit strange to put mirin in a Mediterranean dish, but it worked. 

Taste: It was a chickpea, tomato based dish, which I’ve had a gazillion times, but it was very tasty. It was super quick to make.

Comments: Make it. It’s got your carbs, greens and protein in one dish and takes 25 minutes to prepare. Perfect for after work.
