All that’s required of you in terms of real work is to peel and chop a little vege and slice some beef. It’s not that diffuicult a chore for the delightful outcome that is this yummy soup.

Spicy Chicken, Tomato and Coconut Soup

I love dishes like this soup, which are slow cooked. It’s really satisfying to put them on then go and continue on with another task. Maybe a little work or just some chill out time, knowing that in the background a tasty meal is cooking away. Supposedly we are almost a month into spring here in New Zealand, although looking outside you may be mistaken into thinking its still winter. Sure it is a little warmer, by a degree or two maybe? And we’ve had a couple of really nice days this month. But if you look outside at the moment, there is no blue sky and its wet and windy. It seems to be like that though down here. We get a late start to spring and summer, but hopefully that means the summer will continue a little longer into autumn. Anyway, that’s yet to be seen and I’m making the most of this late winter run, cooking wise, by banging out a few more soups and stews.

So my trusty WEEKNIGHT COQ AU VIN or this quick and easy recipe for ONE-POT SPICY MEATBALLS IN TOMATO SAUCE. Both are cooked in the same Dutch oven that I used to make this recipe.
