Soup is a staple on Ramadan’s menus.
Right after breaking the fast with dates and water, soup is immediately served, very warm to sooth the soul and warm up the empty stomachs, rehydrating the body on its way and refueling it with many of the lost nutrients during the fast. Soup is utmost pampering in Ramadan, and you really want to have some as your body really needs its comfort and nurturing. Therefore, try not to pass on soup.
We are always looking for interesting soup recipes to serve during Ramadan, and I have to say soup does not get any better or healthier than this! I have tried it myself and it is Divine! A wholesome meal on its own that is really delicious and caters to all types of fussiness!! Yes! Because with today’s multitude of fussiness, it seems there is no pleasing any one, but the very talented food stylist and chef Fiona Archibold hit the matter on its head and nailed it with this soup that is hard to resist and leaves no room for any excuse! I will leave it all for her to explain, watch her video as she demonstrates making this heartwarming and delicious soup, while she shares her thoughts and tips about cooking and children, home, as well as pleasing all types of fussiness with one dish!
Doesn’t every mother think about her future relationship with her children?
Don’t we all wonder how their lives will turn out, whether or not they will be happy… we also can’t help but wonder whether they will keep us in their lives, whether they will stay in touch or would they leave and get too busy with their own lives! Perhaps it is true, that what we invest in our children today we see tomorrow. And if we teach them from early on the importance of family, of keeping in touch and sharing our feelings and love with our family members, maybe that helps keep them close. One thing for sure, if we do not express our own feelings to our children, if we don’t hug, kiss and cuddle with them, if we don’t tell them how much we love them, and if we don’t show them, even when they know, then show them some more, and be there for them; then how can we expect them to do just that? Well listen to Fiona talk to us about that in the video.
Fiona describes her soup as: “A veritable ‘meal in itself’ my tried and tested heartwarming minestrone soup is full of heart and soul – pure comfort in a bowl. For a sophisticated version replace the meatballs with shredded cooked chicken adding asparagus spears, courgette slivers and shredded fennel. “
