I usually find Melbourne Winters quite chilly. However, in 2015, I have found Winter in Melbourne to be absolutely freezing! I just cannot warm up.
I rarely eat soups as I prefer to chew something when I eat. This Winter I have just wanted food that warms me up. Soup to the rescue!
I was very lucky to win a recipe book called “The Bikini Cookbook presents Asia” by Michelle Floate in a Facebook competition. It includes a Spicy Chicken and Pumpkin Soup recipe that really appealed to me for these super cold winter days.
It was extremely easy to make. I chopped up all the ingredients, added them to a pot of boiling water, let them boil away, blended the cooked ingredients to my desired consistency with a stick mixer and served.
The soup smelled absolutely delicious while the pot boiled away. I am very pleased to report that it tasted as good as it smelled and definitely warmed me up. It is a great soup during this very cold Melbourne Winter.
