The nights are drawing in and Autumn is firmly upon us. It’s getting cold and wet, but the leaves are changing to beautiful colours and it’s time to snuggle down with a hot drink and your favourite soup.
This delicious soup uses in season pumpkin, coconut milk and a kick of chili, perfect to warm you up even on the darkest of days. Best of all, it will only take you 30 minutes to make!
Maybe I should change my blog to a soup blog, it’s all I seem to be posting these days. Maybe I’m not taking to well the the cold. Maybe I just love a good hearty, but healthy soup. Maybe both.
I take it to work everyday for lunch, and it’s leaking onto the blog because I’m so busy.
I’ve taken my first few freelance jobs and am currently ghost writing and developing the photos for a cook book! That’s right, I’m going to have my work published.
Okay, not under my name, but that’s pretty exciting.
However, what you’re seeing on the blog, is what I’m actually eating.
I don’t have time to make wonderful, towering baked goods that were once my signature, which is depressing when it’s pumpkin season.
I’ve also got the guilts a little bit, recipe development and food photography can mean a lot of waste, so I’m certainly not making anything for my little blog that might get wasted. Despite living with 20 people you’d be surprised.
So yummy Spicy Coconut Soup it is, and even better if they take 30 minutes to make!
