    What is a Soup? Soup is a liquid food which is usually made by boiling meat, fish and/or vegetables in water or a stock. Herbs, spices are added to make it flavorful. Served either warm or hot, it usually is served as a starter during a meal. Many families have a tradition of beginning dinner with a soup. Soups can be clear, watery, creamy, wholesome with bits of meat, fish, vegetables and  grains. For those following a healthy meal plan, soups are vital. They not only provide the vital nutrients but fill the tummy up, which in turn helps one to consume smaller quantity of the main meal.

    Very tropical   The temperatures are soaring, its just too hot to have heavy meals. I just want to make a quick salad and be out of the kitchen in a jiffy.

If you are a lover of both avocado and mango then this salad is just right for you. I did not add any form of sweetness as the mango was sweet.

  • 50. pineapple salsa

    Thank you Nami    2 weeks ago my daughter Nami sent me a recipe for pineapple salsa. As soon as I got some sweet fresh pineapple, I had to try out the recipe. It turned out very well, though I had to make a slight change from the original recipe sent to me from the savouryandsweet blog by her. I couldn’t  find any jalapenos so I replaced it with chilli flakes. Try the recipe out and use it as a starter with taco chips or normal potato crisps(chips) or crispy pita bread. Use tinned pineapples if you don’t get fresh ones. The sweetness from the pineapples, chilliness from the chilli flakes and sourness from the lemon will definitely  play music on your tongue. updated 24/02/2016…
