CRUNCHY POWERFOOD – CARROTS

This is a very unusual situation which happenned to me often!
I belong to those type of person who loves to GIVE than to RECIEVE 🙂
A colleague of mine from work, she asked me to get her two bottles of Soy Sauce. Because she wants to try my Recipe for “Sotanghon Guisado” (Sauteed Glass Noodles) with chicken breast and shrimps. I brought it twice for dinner during our break time and they loved it. At home seems to be everybody wants to try it. In return she gave me I think it’s more than a kilo of carrots from her garden. Was that much so I cooked carrots cream soup and honey-glazed carrots as side dish to my chicken tikka masala. See Entry down here:

The crunchy powerfood, improve vision-good for the eyes remembering may late “Nanay” (mother) as what she’s always telling me during my chilhood, eat more often carrots. And most of all you get Vitamin A. It help slows down the aging of cells, so it’s also Anti aging what I need most at this time lol… 😛

My CARROT SOUP

I added a bundle of SOUP GREENS—Fresh greens or vegetable soup consists of a bundle of different vegetables that are used to flavor dishes. It usually consists of 1-2 carrots, half a leek, a small piece of celery or celery green and a few branches of parsley or a piece of parsley root.
Carrots, washed but not peeled. Because of dietary fiber which is good for diabetic like me. And also chili powder which is optional. Chili is good for enterohepatic circulation.
Fresh, crisp and so healthy. Carrots come in every season at the plate. Especially good they taste us as creamy soup with whipped cream or can be cooked with coconut milk, a vegan version. Here I used a hand blender or mixer until frothy, was really good. Served with sliced bread 😉

My GARLIC-MUSHROOMS CREAM SOUP

Here is tonight’s dinner with my homemade cevapcici (ćevapi) picture down here, with my son’s mix salads, yoghurt-sour cream dip with rice of course and my garlic-mushroom cream soup 🙂

My Homemade CIVAPCICI

Minimally I have modified the soup, because I did used one pouch of garlic soup from finish product. And added fresh sliced button mushrooms and my vegetable stock. Some butter, vegetable broth cube, some sliced fresh garlic, salt and pepper, that was it.

My Garlic-Mushrooms Soup

Melted butter in a large pot, sauté fresh mushrooms briefly add sliced garlic. Now pour in the about 250ml stir in one pouch of garlic soup simmer for 5 minutes or until soup thickened.

Procedure by cooking Garlic-Mushrooms Soup

Seasoned with vegetable broth cube, salt and pepper. You can add whip cream also if you prefer. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Served with chopped parsley on top or if you want croutons!
As soup for dinner or lunch during winter cold days.

My GARLIC-MUSHROOMS SOUP

I like soups because it just goes “hay” and it keeps me warm and full. Especially during cold days. As you will find here in all my entry, I always have soup for start. Maybe fewer during summer time but in winter often. Next time I will try some versatile soup out of parsley, potatoes, pumpkin and more…
