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.

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!

Resin is already an anti-fungi, anti-bacterial substance, it also scares bugs and other animals. But what bees do with it is a true miracle – read below.
