Lemongrass and Oyster Sauce Duck Soup

This is a recipe for a duck soup I made last year. The duck was small and boney and was readily available in the market in Cambodia. They eat a lot of different types of soup so I began regularly thinking out new delicious soups to make. Here’s one of them!

Chicken and Daikon Soup

I’ve been so busy going out every night with my friend visiting, that it’s been impossible to work on my blog. My backlog of recipes is getting bigger and my experience of making new dishes more exciting.

I’ve noticed though that my photos aren’t coming up on my blog as good as they originally are. There’s too much ‘noise’ coming up in the end photo which I upload onto my blog. I think it’s due to the compression. I’m an absolute beginner with Lightroom (which I use to edit all my pics), never used photoshop (but plan to learn eventually) and no knowledge of photography what so ever. But considering how much time I put into editing the photos its f***** frustrating.

Anyway, here’s my take on a Cambodian dish I’ve had many times and love for it’s simplicity and deliciousness.

Broccoli & Coconut Cream Soup

First of all apologies for not being able to reply to comments or likes and checking out the blogs of all the wonderful people who take the time to look at mine.  I have a friend visiting me here for a week or two that I met in Bangkok 4 months ago. We spent a lot of time together and have developed a friendship and I am over the moon to have visitors that I can show around my new new home city:-) I will definitely get round to it!

Here’s a delicious and easy vegan soup recipe I created. Reasons being that I’ve read a lot of information on the net about vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower , cabbage and pak choi being good for reducing the activity of an over active thyroid. So I am trying to include more of these vegetables into my diet.

I’ve made this soup twice now and here is the recipe for my favourite version which is also the easiest. It tasted best without the optional veggies in the ingredients.

Cambodian Snakehead Fish Soup with Baby Water Melon

This is one of the first Cambodian dishes I’ve  cooked since I’m here. Almost authentic because I made one slight change to the recipe. You may think that I’m living in Cambodia and it’s taken this long to cook Cambodian. Truth is I didn’t have a kitchen for such a long time (16 months to be exact) during this trip that I could only eat local food where ever I was. Sometimes good and sometimes a downright disaster. Anyone who knows me in Europe will know what a pain in the ass I can be when it comes to eating out.  I can easily walk for  2 hours (on an already empty starving stomach) in a ridiculously foul mood because I refuse to pay money (no matter how little) for crap food. Unfortunately for me most food places in Berlin have substandard food quality. Since travelling I had to give up my high and mighty food standards for eating out. I would’ve starved to death. And the food isn’t all fantastic here like I thought. Whether eating out in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Singapore ,  Thailand or here in Cambodia, the good places have to be found (and I usually refuse to pay western prices to eat out in Asia). Amazing from the zillions of hawker stalls and street food available how much is to my liking. Too oily, little taste, tough meat, not spiced well or made with misery. I believe that food absorbs the energy of the cook and kitchen. If the kitchen is filthy in the nooks and crannies, I won’t be eating from that kitchen for long. And miserable cooks make me miserable when I eat their food. The same goes for anger. I don’t need angry cooks feeding me their anger as I have enough of my own to deal with.

The difference is of course if one get’s invited into a family for a meal. In Bangladesh I ate exclusively with my extended family and occasionally here in Cambodia I was lucky enough to eat with a family. Only then does one eat real food made with love that can be tasted and felt. The difference is amazing. This is the reason I cook. To make food with love and passion….and as healthy as possible so I can dance a jig immediately after dinner. This is how I measure the standard of my cooking. Food should taste and feel good during and after eating.

Anyway, since I live in Cambodia I can eat Cambodian dishes everyday (and did so for months on end), so it wasn’t on my priority list for cooking.

Cambodian snake head fish – you get the same fish in Bangladesh. How on Earth they swam the freshwater distance is beyond me…??

Baby water melon…..?
