About Me

My photo
I have created two blogs to share my passion of food and fashion with you. The idea is not to give you accurate recipes or tell you what to wear but to share my day to day cooking and shopping experiences with you. I hope you will get new ideas from my blog and that you will share your experiences with me. I have always been creative with everything in my life be it food, clothes or career. I like trying new things,and I am always up for trying things once in my life.

Red Lentil and Coconut Soup with Corriander

Sauté one large diced onion in some olive oil, add chopped ginger and garlic , followed by 3 cups of red lentil. Pour in a can of coconut milk, 2 vegetable stock cubes, 1 cup of water and leave to simmer for 30 minuets until the lentil is completely cooked. Stir in a spoon of tamarind paste and salt and pepper to taste.

Squeeze some lemon juice and garnish with freshly chopped coriander serving it with pita bread and humous.


  1. ooooh nice!! i like :)

    is there a slightly lighter version ? sans the coco milk ?
    what would be a good replacement ?


  2. hmm well you can use a low fat coconut milk but unfortunately it cannot be completely replaced, sorry :0(((
