Dinner

Thai inspired pumpkin soup, an egg and a slice of whole grain bread.

Thai inspired pumpkin soup

When it is chilly outside I like to make food that is quite warm and cozy. I am not a huge soup fan, unless the soup is quite filling. This spicy pumpkin soup fits the bill perfectly. It is fairly quick to make – the longest part of the process is prepping the pumpkin and waiting for the soup to boil. I like both the ginger and chili heat – but you add more of both or tone it down a bit – that is all a mater of taste.

Pearl barley salad

One of my favourite salads is one based on boiled pearl barley. I love pearl barley salad, because it is filling, fresh and easy to make. I often serve it instead of pasta or potatoes and people generally seem pretty happy with that.

I do quite a few variations on this salad, but the boiled barley is at the core of each variation.

Carrots in lemon and theme

For the midwinter feast I couldn’t find period recipe for carrots, that didn’t involve mashing them, as we already had one purée on the table. I decided that I didn’t want a second one, so I found a modern recipe for carrots steamed in lemon juice with fresh theme.

I don’t really like cooked carrots all that much, but I liked these steamed carrots. They were gone by the time we removed the dishes of the second course, so I can’t have been alone in like them. It is a very simple dish, that is quick to make and quite tasty.
