Mushroom & Kaffir Lime Leaf Soup

Mushroom & Kaffir Lime Soup a
This is quite an amazing soup, the flavour is just so out of this world, creamy, full of kaffir lime and with a hint of spice too 🙂 I used two kaffir lime leafs, and I wouldn't use more than that. This recipe is enough for 4 entrée size portions, or 2 mains.

Leftover Veggie Pasta Soup

Leftover Veggie Pasta Soup
Soup can be a piece of art, or it can be a practical way to get rid of left over dishes and veggies that would otherwise give up the ghost soon. I had left over pasta bake and made it into a soup. There was tofu in the pasta bake, but the soup doesn't need it, so it's optional (about half a block, crumbed) 🙂
