The awesome team at My Food Allergy Friends have come out with another book in the ‘Thai’ series…if you haven’t come across these before, they are brilliant books about a lovely boy Thai who manages his allergies in preschool. My kids absolutely love them and proudly take them to preschool or school occasionally.
Chicken Chickpea Soup with Sausage and Spiced Tomato
This Chicken Chickpea Soup with Sausage and Spiced Tomato is a hearty soup with a few different components…they aren’t all necessary if you wanted something a bit simpler. We have a great big log burner which I just love on cold days as the top opens up for cooking on. So I often have pots of stock, soup or stew on the go 🙂 I made the base for the soup from scratch but feel free to substitute ready made chicken stock (or water) if that’s easier for you.
The Chicken Chickpea Soup with Sausage and Spiced Tomato is a sponsored recipe I came up with in conjunction with Countdown Supermarkets. I used Kings Vegetable Soup Mix (bonus: it’s on price lockdown at Countdown), making soups super affordable this Winter. I’ve got a 9 year old in the house eating like a teenager so I’ve been keeping a big pot of soup in the fridge to pull out for hearty afternoon teas when she gets home super hungry after school. I do sometimes crave something ‘Winter-y’ with an injection of flavour though, so I’ve added a spicy punch to this soup and a few added healthy elements like kale and mushrooms.
Chocolate Rhubarb Tart
Dairy free and Egg free
I absolutely love the Hunter Gatherer Gourmet mixes and I was lucky enough to get one of the chocolate ones at the Food Show recently which had been sitting in my pantry waiting for inspiration to hit me. A dear friend also popped a box of freshly cut rhubarb from her garden (love gardening foodie friends!!!) and was coming over for a playdate so I thought I’d try to pair the two together even though chocolate and rhubarb is a slightly weird combination?? So I created this Chocolate Rhubarb Tart and it was really good! If you can’t get the baking mix or it doesn’t fit with your allergies, you can substitute any brownie mix that works for you.
