Curry Laksa Malaysian Noodle Soup

Curry Laksa is one of my all time favourite dishes. Unfortunately Malaysian Restaurants can be hard to come by, especially in smaller cities like St John's and Victoria. Finding a plant friendly option for this soup is also challenging, given that it is typically made with chicken stock, chicken and often seafood.

Scarborough Fair Mushroom Soup

I am a big fan of Simon and Garfunkel, although their music has a melancholy note to it that always leaves me a bit sad. This line from Scarborough Fair kept popping into my head last night, and ended up being the inspiration behind one of the dishes for the mushroom themed belated birthday meal I made up for my Dad and Stepmom last night.

Boxing Day Blues

Over the past few years I have started to notice that Boxing Day can be a bit of a downer. There is so much excitement and festivity (and let's be honest, stress) leading up to Christmas, when it comes and goes, far more quickly than I might have hoped, it can be a bit of a let down.

Hot & Sour Soup

I have been a fan of hot and sour soup for as long as I can remember. I would take a piping hot & spicy bowl over veg noodle soup any day of the week. Even in our pre-plant based days, this particular soup got my vote over chicken noodle. During cold and flu season I find myself making lots of nourishing soup recipes, to help boost my immune system and keep me warm and toasty when temperatures are dropping outside.
