Chili pepper lemongrass dipping oil

I tried to make this satay sauce I remembered from a vietnamese Pho restaurant, but I got this instead.


*chili peppers
* oil
* salt
* chopped lemon grass
* one whole garlic

-chop everything
- add oil to pot
-add chili peppers and let fry for a while
-add garlic, turn down heat so they don't burn
-add lemon grass
-add salt
turn down heat and let simmer for a bit.

Serve with bread or anything you want extra flavour with!


Cilantro Pea Soup

I tried to make this recipe


but used cilantro instead by accident. The result was....DELICIOUS!

I used mostly the same ingredients, but some were different, so I"ll just list what I used here.


*bunch of cilantro
*4 green onions
*half of a lime
*1 garlic clove
* about 4 tbsp of sheep yogurt
*1 small red potatoe
*1 onion bouillon cube
*1 beef bouillon cube (it was what we had in the cupboard - forgive me! Although, you can use vegetable broth if you have it)
* water
* frozen peas (about 1-2 cups)
*sunflower oil

I heated the sunflower oil on low heat, added the chopped potatoes, chopped green onions, and minced garlic. Fried until I could smell the onions.

Then I added the bouillons and water (as much as the amount of soup I wanted. To make flavourful, I would just add salt).

Then I let the potatoes become tender and then added the peas for about 5 minutes.

Then I took it off the stove and added cilantro, squeezed lime juice, added salt.

Then I used hand blender to blend everything in the pot (too lazy to pour into a blender)

Then I put back on heat and served.

Feta cheese dip

This is an easy to make recipe and quite tasty when dipped with bread.


Feta cheese
Olive oil/ butter/ margarine (your choice)

Just put together and microwaves. Voila!

I used Bulgarian Feta cheese with goat butter and added some paprika. Loved the taste ! (tasted like a chemical less cheesy :P - A less guilty indulgence, I suppose!)
