Salty lemon is an ingredient in moroccan or vietnamese dishes. It tastes a bit like Japanese Yuzu. The point in the long preserving time is for lemons to almost fully disintegrate.
This soup contains legumes but you will not fart from it 🙂
—- PICTURE COMING —-
||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.|
||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.|
||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!
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.
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!
The dessert is delish already on its own but it can be served with wipped cream, with a mousse, on top of a cake. It is sweet and goes through like a charm. Excellent for diabetics!
Propolis is highly anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungi bee product. Bees pick resin from flower buds and harmed trees, add their enzymes and pad their bee hive with the mixture. 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.
