In this section of the blog I starting a food diary of what I am cooking in my home when I'm not cooking from Mum's recipe book.
Often the best meals come when I am just looking in the pantry creating a meal out of what is available. Tonight there was a pot of pumpkin soup that I had quickly made on Sunday morning, I had made some lovely fresh Chicken stock and added a piece of sauteed pumpkin, ginger, garlic. I didn't really have enough pumpkin for the amount of stock, so I put this unfinished soup in the fridge for "later on". It was only 13'C today in Adelaide and soup was what we needed.
I reheated the pumpkin broth (watery soup) and added a tub of left over tomato salsa (tinned tomato, fresh tomato, garlic, basil leaves) that I had made for bruschetta on the weekend. Then I added a generous amount of ground coriander, a can of white cannellini beans and a dollop of cream. A quick zap with the bamix, a grind of black pepper and it is done.
