Tomato Garlic Soup

comfort food , health , homegrown , organic , soup , winter , yummy

Bored Weekends

Winter is here, again! And this time I am at a place where neither I can grow vegetables, nor can I prepare my favourite soup. So I thought why not write about it to revisit one of my most cherished recipes. I prefer this whenever either of us feel sick. Best for throat/chest infection, cough, cold, fever. I prepare this even when no one’s sick, I love this soup so much. Since I am a flag bearer of healthy eating, all the main ingredients come from my organic kitchen garden, prepared in pure ghee, which also comes from my kitchen. It’s tasty, it’s easy to make and soothes sore throat as much as the soul. Enjoyed best cooped up inside the blanket in single digit temperature, which I miss here in Kolkata.

The Ingredients:

  • 10 fully ripe tomatoes
  • 2 garlic bulbs
  • Few green chillies
  • A couple of tea spoons desi…

Black Bean Burrito

burrito, food, health, journey, Mexico, recipe, running, Spain, vegan, wellness, wine

Run Free And Strong

Consistent with one of my running principles “know what [you] put in your body”, black bean burritos are simple, healthy, balanced nutrition with minimal processing. And for those of us always on the run (pun intended), any burritos not immediately consumed can be refrigerated or frozen.

The recipe and instructions below are loosely based on several online recipes. I’m not a professional chef, rather I’m self-taught, and my objective is to share my experiences with food and drink, rather than pretend to teach how to make black bean burritos.

It is generally believed that the burrito originated in Mexico, and that the Pueblo peoples of the southwestern United States prepared what is known as the modern burrito. There are many regional variations of the burrito, with different fillings and some served with sauces. I prefer the simple black bean burrito without rice or meat.

Vegetarian Barley Soup

Gluten Free, Recipe, Vegan, Vegetarian

Live With Syd

I LOVE soup. I could eat soup anywhere, anytime, any season. But, unfortunately, there are some drawbacks to my love for soup.

1) Soup has a TON of sodium

The amount of sodium most soups have is quite alarming. If you haven’t taken a look at the quantities on a canned soup label…brace yourself. Thankfully, if you make it yourself you can control the sodium levels. With the availability of low sodium broth and the ability to control your salt proportions, homemade soup is always the healthier option.

2) Vegetarian soup is not always available

More often than not, soup options at restaurants are not vegetarian. Even if it doesn’t have meat in it, the broth is usually chicken.

This vegetarian barley soup is delicious, packed with protein, and filling.
