Warming Chicken & Ham Stew with Savoury Scones

It’s all gone downhill so suddenly with regard to the weather, so today I got inspired and made a hearty stew to cheer me up from within. Yummy boneless chicken, cubes of ham, a medley of vegetables … and all served with a side of warm herby savoury scones. Comfort food at its best!

All American Smokey Bacon Corn Chowder

Item #2 on my list of famous American dishes … a Smokey Bacon Corn Chowder. Rather simple coz everything gets tossed into the pot and then blitzed to creamy perfection. Wonderful smokey bacon flavour coupled with sweet corn kernels … man, the pairing is incredible. Definitely a keeper.

Hot & Sour Chinese Soup

Mmmm … a random trip to the Asian store helped me produce this wonderful soup today. While not exactly made-from-scratch the results were pretty stunning. If you would like to make yours without the help of a pre-mix, feel free to follow the YouTube video tagged on here. Her recipes look amazing, I will have to subscribe to her channel and teach myself some proper Cantonese cooking.

Seafood Bread Bowls

A beautiful warming fish & seafood stew, served in a crusty bread bowl. I have always wanted to serve soup this way … and now I have finally done so … yay, me! This soup can be done with clams and mussles too, if you find it difficult to get hold of lobster.

Homestyle 5 Treasure Soup.

There are not many Asian style soups that take my fancy as much as this one. Its thick and hearty; full of flavour and it brings back many comforting memories of home. This soup is an easy one-pot meal, and is what I crave when I am feeling under the weather or down with a cold. For a heartier meal I add glass noodles to the mix.

Spicy Chicken & Coconut Soup.

Had a craving for soup, but I didn’t want a broth … neither did I feel like having a heavy creamed soup. So I went fifty-fifty and devised my own version of Thai coconut curry soup. The ginger and lime leaves are so warming and refreshing all at the same time; the coconut milk gives it a creamy texture but not heavy. Perfect! A meal on it’s own, I must say.

Carrot & Chickpea Soup

Once again I had too much of one kind of veggie in my fridge, so the best way of getting rid of them was to dump them all into one pot and whip up a batch of creamy soup. Chickpeas were added to thicken the consistancy and to up the protein content. A healthy and delicious meal.
