Blooming Coconut Pumpkin Soup
Updated: Apr 2
My name is Rachel and I am starting this blog with a very easy and cosy recipe.
It's still cold outside even if we are all impatiently waiting for sunbeams and blooming flowers. I love winter, but winter is long, and it's often in the end of the season that we feel emotionnally exhausted and overwelmed, did you notice that?
You, who are reading right now, how do you feel? How do you handle and beat the "winter end" blues?
Of course, food is always a good remedy, specially comfort healthy food. They are the best for boost the body and the soul at the same time.
So, that's what I did. I put a little bit of spring in a cosy creamy warm soup.
Spicy fresh ginger, creamy coconut milk, dun pea sprouts, edible flowers...
Spring will come soon, I promise.
