LEGUME SOUPS - Home Cooking Dish of the Month for January 2014

herby | Dec 31, 201305:23 PM

Whew, am I glad my first month as coordinator is over and we have chosen a dish to cook in January :) Welcome to the first DOTM of the New Year and let’s hope that it will be a great year for everyone in all aspects of our lives.

Soup is a perfect idea for a freezing month and stick-to-the-bone legume soups are very comforting and soul-warming. There are so many possibilities: smooth and chunky, meat based and vegetarian, Indian dhals and rasams, Moroccan harriras, peanut soups of Africa, and a personal favourite: Persian meatball soup that has a few legumes as a base and tiny lamb meatballs as a garnish.

Everyone is welcome to participate; you can join in at any time, and start cooking and posting. You are also welcome to post on the threads for the past DOTM. Please share your recipes, your techniques, your outcomes, and of course, your photos!

When reporting on a recipe, please remember to paraphrase if it is not your own and feel free to post a link if a recipe is on the internet. Verbatim copying of recipes to the boards is a violation of the copyright of the original author and posts with copied recipes will be removed.
