Artichoke soup

Apr 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

This delicious soup can be prepared with fresh artichokes, but works as well with frozen ones. I have used the frozen ones and must say, that the soup is very tasty. The soup thickens in combination with the yogurt, the chunky artichoke give it a bite. I can only recommend this to all artichoke-lovers. Bookmark [...]



Eggplant and lemon soup

Apr 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

There are lots of eggplants to be seen on the market stands and in the super markets here in Greece. A good reason to use them in all different sorts of ways. This time I decided for a simple but delicious soup. The roasted eggplants in combination with the lemon taste fresh, the touch of [...]

Tomato soup

Mar 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

Another simple thing to cook and eat is tomato soup. Like most soups I like it has only few but fresh ingredients. This one is one of my favourite soups but you really need good tomatoes. My Manaviko (vegetable shop) has great Cretan tomatoes already. They are juicy and soft, just like tomatoes for the [...]



Green olive and anchovy soup

Mar 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

A truly different soup. Ingredients as such are typical for the Mediterranean and go well together but one would expect them rather to be served separately on a tray with a glass of wine as a Mezze. The milk of course seems entirely misplaced but is totally necessary. Another great dish discovered in the cook [...]



Parsley foam soup

Feb 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

I had eaten this soup many years ago at my fathers house. Now that I wanted to cook it I could not recall much but a few details of the preparation. This was for certain: Lots of parsley was involved in order to achieve this intense and unique flavour. Some cream, some butter and beef [...]

While the soup was boiling I read the comments posted on this recipe, one of them by Kochschlame . [...]
