Among the best things about going back home is eating mum’s food.
The very food I had growing up, and the very same food that set the tone for my palate and created the interest in cooking and food creativity.
Better yet is the abundance of new recipes that mum shares with me every time I go there! Sometimes it becomes more of a chore, like trying to get as many as I can before leaving 🙂 The thing I love the most is that lately, she has been coming up with these wonderful recipes that are great on flavour yet extremely simple and easy to prepare. She says: “I hardly have the time to spend in the kitchen as I did before! But that doesn’t mean we have to stop having good food! I am really into fast and easy these days, but of course only the best would do!”
I have squeezed as many as I could out of her in a very short period of time, I will be sharing some with you and thought to start with Lentil Soup, my favourite ever!! Mum’s Red Lentil soup is by far the best I have ever tried! Even better than mine!! 🙂 Lentil Soup can be prepared in a variety of ways. The concept is the same, but there are variations. Some add carrots, some add potatoes, and some use spices…etc I have tried many, but this recipe is by far my favourite of all. Hope you like it too 🙂
