It is easier to serve large groups with the individual portions than to cut up a large cheesecake.
I got the inspiration for this soup from the FAMOUS MOROCCAN SOUP – HARIRA. Absolutely delicious and needs to be cooked long and slow!
This is an easy, healthy vegetable soup. The pancetta gives the soup a delicious smoky flavour and the dumplings served with the soup lift this soup to another level! The dumplings are light and cheesy – it takes only a few minutes to make and SO worth the little bit of effort. This soup is a meal on its own.
I had a similar soup at one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town recently and decided that this is the soup for this week!!! It is a very simple recipe that can be vegetarian (just substitute the chicken stock with vegetable or mushroom stock) OR Vegan! For a Vegan variation I will substitute the chicken stock with vegetable stock, the milk with almond milk, the butter with olive oil and leave out the crème fraiche and parmesan. Drizzle with a generous “glug” of good quality truffle oil and perhaps garnish with some pan fried wild mushrooms for the Vegan option?
This soup is very filling and certainly a meal on its own – a bit of crusty bread on the side can work well with it!
This dish is delicious served with mashed potatoes. The strong lemon flavor combined with white wine and cream is delicious and tangy.
This is my favourite meaty winter soup! If this one does not warm you up – nothing will!!!
(Double up on this recipe and keep leftovers in the fridge for a few days – it will last really well. You can also freeze left overs for 1 month)
This soup is served at ski resorts all over Europe – we had it for the first time with Austrian friends many years ago in Langebaan. (on a cold, rainy day!) It was thick and chunky – almost like a stew! This recipe is my version.
This unusual soup is quick, delicious and easy to make.
Decorated with eleven balls of marzipan and chocolate coated almonds to represent the twelve Apostles minus the traitor Judas. The chocolate gives the cake an interesting twist and the cherries and cranberries are a delicious surprise when you bite into the cake. The layer of marzipan inserted in the middle of the cake makes it moist and lifts the flavour to a new level!
These biscuits can be made a few days before they are needed and stored in an airtight container. You can make any shape and size – decorate with the royal icing! They take time to make but is well worth the effort.
