Hot and poor legume soup

This soup contains legumes but you will not fart from it 🙂


  • 3-4 cups of small-bean legumes
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 l water
Clean legumes with cold water. Drop them in a big pot, add more water than to cover them and turn on high heat. Cover with a lid. Clean and cut potatoes into 1,5×1,5 cm cubes, approx., throw into the pot. When soup boils turn the heat to medium or lower, so it is still boiling but on smaller heat, cover.
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of marjoram
  • 1 tbsp of colorful pepper
  • 1-2 tsp of Himalayan salt
  • 1 leek, 1 big or few smaller onions
Throw cumin and marjoram into the pot – this is mandatory, otherwise you will fart after the soup. Take pepper and grind it – best with a mortar, then taste will be a lot better. Throw pepper and salt into the soup as well. Clean and cut leek into 1-1,5 cm slices. Clean onions and throw them without cutting into the soup. Add leek as well. Keep boiling on small/medium heat for 10-15 minutes until legumes and/or potatoes are only slightly raw.
  • 15 fresh beans
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup of sweet cream for taste
  • water
Crush garlic cloves and throw them into the pot. After the soup has been boiling on medium/small heat for some time and you tasted it to see the legumes and/or potatoes are almost ready: clean and cut fresh beans into 2cm slices and throw them into the pot – adding them in the end will make sure they are not overcooked. At the same time you can add cream (optional). After it all boiled you can still add a lot of water – this time it has to be boiling – to have more soup, if so you might want to add some salt for taste.
Serve with chives or coriander on top!
  • Servings: ~15
  • Healthy: 8 (cooked, but not overcooked)
  • Difficulty: simple
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Storage: in cold, for something like a week

This soup is called ‘poor’ because it is cheap. Legumes, potatoes, a leek don’t cost fortune and are main ingredients. Spices ? You anyway should have those.

Bear garlic pesto

I am in this place, which sometimes seems to be hell, sometimes paradise. Today it is the latter. Thank you God for putting me on the path to forest today to find fields of bear garlic!

Bear garlic / Ramsløk / Czosnek niedźwiedzi / Bärlauch is a very aromatic plant with strong garlic taste and strong, I dare to say addictive, aroma.

Marinated ginger for sushi

Marinated ginger jared

We had a craving for sushi recently. The idea was ofc to home-make everything. Except of soya sause, which I have from dear Japanese friend and which is a fermented, organic one. And rice vinegar. We even tried to make wasabi from horseradish – that didn’t turn out so kicky as it should, maybe next time 🙂

Anyhow in the shop our gaze stopped on marinated ginger for sushi – the amount of chemistry in it is overwhelming. But making it was a piece of cake!

Heavy metal detox salad

Apple chlorella salad with coconut flakes and wallnuts

Heavy metal in this article is a metal with high density that is considered harmful to living organisms, those are described in here.

Once I was exposed to mercury I swallowed a lot of articles on how to get rid of heavy metals from body – it was an awesome journey. I think I was missing out on the knowledge 🙂 Now I actually understand how Japanese people are healthy even though they eat plastic wrapped take-outs, a lot of tuna and work like crazy.

Anyhow below is a fun and healthy recipe that should help and can be a regular part of diet regardless of heavy metals 🙂
