Broccoli Parmesan Soup

Preparation : 5 Minutes

Cooking Time : 30-35 Minutes

Serves : 4 Servings

Episode : No video recipe available yet

Author : Christina Hann Trefzger

Second dish of tonight: Broccoli Parmesan Soup! It’s my daughter, Mack’s favorite. She kept telling me that she ate at her kindergarten for lunch and how much she loved it.

This is the way how I make my Broccoli Soup and my kiddos love it! You can replace Parmesan with other cheese (Gouda, Emmentaler, Cheddar etc). Each will bring different background taste tho. And my favorite is always the one with Parmesan.

For this recipe, you will need:

500 gr (17 oz) of Broccoli, chopped

1 Potato, medium size and chopped

2-3 cloves of Garlic, minced

Salt, pepper to taste

250 ml (1 Cup) of Crème fraîche

80 gr (1/3 Cup) of grated Parmesan

250 ml (1 Cup) of Cooking cream

500 ml (17 fl oz) of Water

1 Tsp of Olive Oil

Parsley, optional

PS. If you don’t have Crème fraîche, you can also use sour cream. Cooking cream in Germany is similar to half and half or lighter heavy cream. We love to eat the whole broccoli (florets and stems). The stems are more delicious for me than the florets 🥰

Instructions:

1. Turn on your stove to medium high. Put some olive oil, chopped broccoli, potato and minced garlic. Stir fry for about 5-7 minutes. 

2. Add in the water, salt, pepper and cook for about 25-30 minutes. Don’t cover your pot with a lid!

3. Turn the stove to really low heat, add in the Crème fraîche, cooking cream and grated parmesan. Don’t cook too long, and stir it otherwise it will foam curds.

4. Blend it with a blender or a hand blender.

5. Serve with some parsley. xoxo 🥰

Indonesian Balado Eggs

Hi guys!

We’ve been sick for months but this doesn’t hold me back from sharing my recipes. I’ve been craving something spicy but not too spicy. And since I love eggs, so I decide to make some Balado Eggs. Balado is a dialect from Minangkabau (where Rendang originate) and means “with chillis”. So if you’re in Indonesia and check out on a menu and spot “Balado”, watch out. Normally it is very SPICY!

I modify this recipe a bit and it’s a lot milder so that everybody can enjoy it. Traditionally Balado Eggs are hard boiled eggs with very spicy sambal sauce. I don’t really like to eat hard boiled eggs, so I boil them for 8 minutes ish (so I still have runny yolks). If you like hard boiled eggs of course, you cook your hard boiled eggs.

Here is the list of the ingredients:

6-7 Boiled Eggs

6-8 Dried Chillis, cut, deseeded and soaked in hot water

4 Red Paprika Peppers, deseeded and cut

4 Cherry Tomatoes

3-4 Cloves of Garlic

1 Onion, diced

3 Kaffir Lime Leaves

1 Lemongrass Stalk, cut into halves and pounded

2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar

1 Tsp of Salt

Juice of half a lemon

1/3 Cup of Oil

Instructions:

  1. Into your blender, throw in the cherry tomatoes, paprika peppers, garlic, onion, dried chillis and oil (leave some for frying later) and blend them until smooth.
  2. Turn on your stove to medium heat.
  3. Into your wok, add in some oil and pour in all the blended mixture and give it a stir.
  4. Add in kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass stalk, brown sugar and salt.
  5. As soon as it boils, lower the heat. Put the lid on and leave some small space so that the water from the lid won’t get into your wok again.
  6. Cook for about 50 minutes or until it reduces to 3/4, turn off the heat and add in the lemon juice.
  7. Add in the boiled eggs and serve with some warm rice. xoxo

Hi guys!

It’s weekend! It’s dessert time yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I have made this georgous Mango Tiramisu a couple of times and my friends really love it so I thought to share this recipe with you!

This is a twist of classic Tiramisu and kid friendly one too. If you make it for yourselves (no kids, then I’d recommend you to dip your lady fingers into some Limoncello and it will give you really nice flavor!).

And if you have been reading my blog /following my instagram, you’d know that almost all of my recipes are not so sweet or so salty 🙂

For this recipe, I don’t have a video recipe yet, but if you want to see how I make my mango cream, you can check it on youtube here: Thai Mango Sticky Rice

Here is the list of the ingredients:

1 Mango, skinned, cut and blended

2 Tbsp of Coconut Cream

1 Tbsp of sugar (if your mango is already sweet then don’t add any sugar)

A pinch of Salt

25-30 Lady Fingers

500 gr of Mascarpone Cream Cheese

200 gr Heavy Cream, whipped

1-2 Tbsp of Sugar

Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Sugar

1 Glass of Lemon Juice  (Limoncello if you want something with alcohol)

Ikea Casserole Dish (Honestly I don’t know the size)

Instructions:

  1. Clean, skin, cut and blend your mango in a blender.
  2. Turn on your stove into medium heat, on your sauce pan add in your blended mango. If it is a sweet mango, don’t add any sugar, add 1 tablespoon of sugar if it is sour) along with 2 Tbsp of coconut cream and a pinch of salt. The salt with enhance the sweetness of the mango. Don’t worry it won’t make it salty.
  3. As soon as it boils, lower the heat into really low and let it simmer until it gets really thick (normally it takes 15 minutes ish) and turn off your stove. Let it sit for about 15 minutes and then keep it in a fridge.
  4. In your large bowl, whip your heavy cream with sugar and vanilla extract until thick. If you use vanilla sugar, then reduce the amount of the sugar.
  5. Add the mascarpone cheese little by little into your whipped heavy cream and mix until all of the mascarpone is mixed with the whipped cream.
  6. Dip your lady fingers in lemon juice (or limoncello) and arrange them on your casserole dish.
  7. Add in some cream cheese mixture and spread it even with a spatula or a spoon.
  8. Spread some mango cream.
  9. Repeat again with lady fingers until all ingredients are done.
  10. Put it in a fridge for at least an hour or overnight.
  11. Enjoy it with your friends xoxo
