It is super simple and delicious served with... Read more

Red pepper soup

The color, the texture, the flavor… Everything in one! That’s why I think this soup makes the perfect appetizer for Christmas dinner. It’s nice and light (you can make it a weightier meal in its own right by adding rice and cashew-feta balls), which makes it the perfect lead up to the next course.... Read more
