RECIPE saffron soup

Food,17 November 2014

Soups are perfect for cold and dark fall nights. I make a lot of vegetable puree soups and I love to eat them with a side of freshly baked bread and some nice cheese.  I made this soup for the first time last weekend and I thought it would be the perfect recipe to share with you, since it’s o easy, fast and healthy.

I hope you like it :)!



4 portions

1 can light coconut milk

2 dl creme fraiche

2 cubes vegetable stock

1 package saffron

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 and 1/2 teaspoon graded ginger

2 dl water

500 g vegetables ( I used cauliflower, broccoli, sugar snaps, spring onion and carrots)

400 g chicken

fresh coriander

  1. Pour coconut milk and creme fraiche in a pot. Add stock, saffron, salt and ginger. Let boil for a while. Add water and vegetables.

What I am going to tell you now might come as a shock.  I don’t only eat chocolate as a snack ;D! Even though I can’t survive without a piece or two a day I actually snack on other things as well.
I don’t necessarily buy organic but I always try to think of what’s in season. We have the most beautiful apple trees at the cottage and every fall I stuff myself, my family, my freezer and every single food I make with apples in different shapes and forms.
While I was pregnant my biggest cravings were apples and salmon soup and I ate about 6 apples a day for months.
I prefer to eat my apples sliced and raw. I am happy I can eat these unpeeled since they’re from our own yard.
A good way to make apples more fun is to add a table spoon of peanut, cashew or almond butter as a dip. It tastes delicious and adds both healthy fats and protein to make this snack complete. I usually slice up two or three apples every night before I go to bed and I still can’t get enough!

Take advantage of what this season has to offer and remember that one apple  a day keep the doctor away ;).
