Lauren’s Aubergine and Champignon Curry

December 1, 2018

So here is how this came to be. I’m a day away from switching houses and still hanging out in my fridge are two shiny aubergine and a bag full of fresh mushrooms. Funny enough they are sharing the shelf space with half a can of coconut milk. I don’t know if you see a…

Lauren's Root Vegetable Soup

A bowl of this soup really could not be easier to make or more comforting to eat. What it takes, however, is a handful of good, quality vegetables and the willingness to peel and chop. And yes there is kohlrabi on this list and it totally is not a root vegetable! But it was looking so lovely at the market I couldn’t leave it out. Kohlrabi, by the way, is a brassica just like cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. I enjoyed…

A bowl of Miso soup

This soup is so nutrient dense yet simple it certainly belongs in your weekly lineup through the cold months ahead. I was introduced to miso soup by my German homeopath one long winter when, after a bout of bronchitis, I could not regain my strength. I clearly remember my search for miso in Germany brought me to a back alley herbalist shop in Heidelberg. The scoop of paste I purchased provided many nourishing bowls of soup, aiding my recovery.
