Yoghurt Soup with Rice or Yayla Çorbası

This morning my husband woke up with quite a bit of muscle ache. He felt the first signs of whatever he’s got yesterday while we were at Art Gallery of New South Wales for Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibition. After we got home, we had another plan for the day: supporting a friend of… Continue reading Yoghurt Soup with Rice or Yayla Çorbası

Green Lentils and Noodle Soup or Bacaklı Çorba

Coming back from 5 week Europe holiday including Turkey, I decided to cook something Turkish. Since the weather here in Australia is cold at this time of the year, I thought a soup would be the best. This was one of my Dad’s favourite soups growing up in Northern part of Turkey where the cuisine… Continue reading Green Lentils and Noodle Soup or Bacaklı Çorba

Hybrid Lentil Soup

Hybrid Lentil Soup. No Peoples, it is not half lentil soup, half Van Gogh’s boots. As a matter of fact, there are no boots in it at all. I have been thinking about my own interpretations of certain classic dishes recently. Take this –supposedly classic– lentil soup recipe as an example; it is half straight… Continue reading Hybrid Lentil Soup

Chick-less Chicken Soup with Celery, Baby Peas, Corn and Dill

This is one of those recipes that just happen. I was hungry and it was cold so I needed a soup and I needed it fast. I was also in the mood for a chicken soup substitute. The kind that your mother makes for you when you are sick although I was feeling fine. Anyway,… Continue reading Chick-less Chicken Soup with Celery, Baby Peas, Corn and Dill

Vegan Minestrone, the lazy way

I took all the possible shortcuts in the making of this soup. It was cold –unexpectedly– like the weather is predictable in Sydney. However, I made garlic bread to go with it but that’s another post. I could’ve used cannellini beans in this soup but my husband doesn’t like beans. If you don’t have any… Continue reading Vegan Minestrone, the lazy way

Vegan Potato and Mung Bean Soup

I came up with a recipe for this soup long time ago when I was first introduced to mung beans –like 12 years ago. But I didn’t write the recipe down anywhere. At least I thought I didn’t. So, every time I made it, I had to rediscover everything. While I was tidying up my… Continue reading Vegan Potato and Mung Bean Soup

Vegan Tomato Soup

There is nothing more comforting than a cup of hot soup in the winter. I noticed that I had a few tomatoes in my fridge that needed to be used up so I made this fresh tomato soup for lunch. If you choose your bread carefully, the soup is gluten-free. Ingredients: 2 tbsp vegetable oil… Continue reading Vegan Tomato Soup

Vegan Lentil Soup

I developed this recipe from many other recipes by neighbours and family members. Coming from a warm climate country, although I like hot weather, one thing I like about chilly weather is soups! This lentil soup is in particular quite warming because of cumin and turmeric is a great blood purifier. This is some ancient wisdom… Continue reading Vegan Lentil Soup

Şehriyeli Sebze Çorbası or Vegetable Soup with Turkish Vermicelli

I adopted this recipe from a non-vegan one by leaving chicken and chicken stock out and replacing them with vegetables and Massel chicken style stock powder. For extra flavour, I use Continental Stock Pot Vegetable which comes in a pack of 4 little pots and one pot is enough for this soup.  Make sure you… Continue reading Şehriyeli Sebze Çorbası or Vegetable Soup with Turkish Vermicelli
