Chilled pea soup

I usually make hot soup for breakfast and I usually don’t take pictures, even though I should. Well, after a meal at the well known vegetarian Bistro 1847 in Manchester, I’ve decided to make a chilled soup. Early in the morning, I looked in my freezer and decided to make a pea and cauliflower soup. It tasted delicious, this is why I got some pictures, so I can share my recipe with you.

Gluten free scones

This was my first attempt to make gluten free scones. It was also the first time I’ve tried to modify a recipe to be gluten free. I’ve read about the gluten free requirements because I don’t know much about it as we don’t suffer from gluten intolerance. I tried it because only by challenging myself I can evolve as a cook.

So, I’ve stared with my basic scone recipe (adapted from Mary Berry) and I changed the self-raising flour to almond flour. I also changed the fat provenience from butter to peanut butter, to be extra healthy.

I served the scones with unsweetened whipped cream and homemade blueberries and cardamon jam.

Blueberries and cardamon jam

I love trying new jam flavours. I had blueberries and looked on spice shelves to see what I can add, cardamon was the one that made me smile. I’ve tried it and it tastes amazing, I love the flavour combination and I’ve used it in a smoothie too.

Oven baked chips

I think everybody loves oven baked chips, they are healthy and delicious at the same time. It takes only a few minutes to prepare the potatoes and then relax for an hour until they are ready to be served.

U.S.

I continued my Taste the World adventure with US. I learned a few things from the recipes I’ve made and I’m going to use them in other recipes, like the sauce for pasta. I hope you’ll enjoy my recipes.

01 Corn chowder
My first recipe was corn chowder, a thick soup. I am not a fan of thick soups, but I liked this one. I never tried corn soup before.

02 Mac and cheese
I didn’t understand why so many people love Mac and cheese until I’ve made it. It tastes different from a regular pasta with cheese, because it has the milk-based sauce that makes it delicious.

03 Hummingbird cake
The meal finished with Hummingbird cake, a pineapple and banana with pecans cake. A little too sweet for my taste, but delicious.

Hummingbird cake

Hummingbird cake is made with pineapple, pecans and bananas. It is a southern recipe with Jamaican influences, but still considered American.

I feel the cake was too sweet for my taste, but I liked it a lot. I would make some small changes to the recipe, less oil, less sugar in the sponge and more fruits and also less icing. I will take pictures of the modified recipe when I’ll make it.
