- More soups: I’ve spotted some more cracking soups this week. First up Jess from Sweet Amandine has posted a Roasted carrot with fennel recipe. While I’m not a huge fan of carrots I reckon I’d love this soup.
- Sauerkraut in a soup? This morning I also read The Wednesday Chef’s recipe for Leek soup with peas and sauerkraut. To me this sounds like a strange combination, but I’ve learnt to trust Luisa’s tastes. After all she’s behind my favourite broccoli recipe and the amazing caramelised corn.
- Losing a pound: A very practical, realistic and helpful post from Sophie on how to lose a pound (ie about half a kilo). She goes through the numbers and suggests relatively easy food swaps you can make to get the necessary energy deficit.
- Genetic causes of obesity: More no-nonsense writing from Marion Nestle, this time into how many people are obese because of their genes. Despite the headlines and research, it’s not many.
- Cucumber salad: At the moment on this side of the world, the idea of eating soup makes me wilt. So I love the look of Lili’s cucumber salad over at Pikelet and Pie. Toasted sesame seeds, garlic, and a sesame oil and vinegar dressing. Delicious.
- Blueberry . . . omelette? An intriguing idea from Bron Marshall. It’s a sweet-ish omelette with blueberries and cinnamon. I’ve never thought to make a non-savoury omelette, so I’ll be trying this out soon.
