There are times, especially during the cold winter months, when we all hanker after a chunky hearty filling soup that bursts with flavours, … and make it hot and spicy, like I did, or tone down the heat to your liking.

It’s well worth the little effort to create such a soup. It is filling and satisfying, and even delights guests!

Apart from the sausages plus chorizo you may well have the ingredients already in the kitchen, or adapt them to what you have.

German lentil Soup

.

The lentil soup is pretty much a family staple food in Germany. Although this is a classic soup / one-pot-dish, every family has their own variants re the ingredients, meaning every family develops their own traditions how they like their lentil soup best.

For some it’s just soupy with lentils and sausages, for others it’s a full blown meal with loads of veggies in it. Here is my version of it with suggestions as my Bavarian grandmother would cook it: with “Speck”.

(Although Wikipedia traces its origins to Austria and Italy, Speck is very traditional to Germany. It is not for the super lean cuisine conscious folk, but I challenge anyone who experiences the delicious and mouth watering cooking smells wafting enticingly through the home not to develop a very healthy and hearty appetite!!

Ghanaian - West African - Peanut Soup

This recipe originally was given to me by my Ghanaian friend, Patricia, but I needed to tweak it to suit my taste buds (read: add more chillies and give it more oompf!!). My dear friend still thinks she should tone down the spiciness for her Caucasian food lover … not so, please! I prefer a wild taste bud party with fire!

I have also discovered that this dish is ideally suited for a large slow cooker and cooked for best part of a day on a low heat. That way the chilli spiciness is not harsh but mellows in beautifully and allowing all the flavours to mature and blend nicely.

If you’re up for an unusual peanut soup with chicken or any poultry, here is the recipe:

Since 1988, I’ve had strong connections with Africans and I am happy to say that some dear friendships resulted which have lasted till today.

Needless to say, I was also enjoying their generosity when it came to new and interesting foods. So here is one recipe I made many times at home and has become my own family favourite.

This recipe was graciously given to me by my Ghanaian friend Patricia.
