Hey guys, I got news!
I am proud to say that I am officially part of Philips‘ brand new campaign ‘The Home Restaurant’. The campaign will be running in all the Scandinavian Countries from September 1st.
What is my role in all of this you might ask. Well it is to inspire the Danes to cook more meals at home and to teach them how to cook simple and healthy quality food in their own kitchens.
Here is my first recipe in the series: Beet Root Soup bursting with flavours from the Thai Kitchen
When I started developing this beet soup recipe I never thought it would work out. I found the combo of beets and thai flavours so strange but boy was I surprised when I tasted the first batch. With a deep earthy flavour mixed with the freshness of lemongrass and then subtle hint of chili is a magical combination and bring a party to your mouth. Even though you are not a beet kind of a person, please give this recipe a try – I am pretty sure you’re gonna love it!
I made this beet soup recipe for the Philips Soup Maker, but no worries, if you do not have one just use the old fashioned way; a pot and hand blender.
The bowls are from By Nord Copenhagen
