Sweet Potato Soup Attempt 1: Thai Style

So the idea was to design my own Sweet Potato soup recipe.

Why sweet potato soup? Why not:

They are:

  • High in vitamin B6
  • Good source of vitamin C & D
  • Contain Iron
  • Contain Magnesium
  • Contain Potassium
  • Low GI
  • High in carotnoids

Anyway, less health and more recipe.

I pretty much started by looking at different articles online to get an idea of quantities of ingredients, different combo of flavours etc… etc.. to come up with mine, its possible that it resembles another recipe, but this is all my doing :P

INGREDIENTS

1 KG of Sweet Potatoes
5 Cups of Campballs low sodium chicken stock
1 cayenne chilli
25 grams of fresh ginger
1/2 of a nutmeg seed/pod/whatever you call them
4 big Kaffir lime leaves
Juice of 1 lime
1.5 tsp of Fish Sauce
Fresh basil
Black pepper to taste
1 tbs of brown suger
165ml can of coconut cream.

I used a smallish home grown cayenne, you can pretty much use what you want if you want more or less heat. The Cayenne added nice flavour and a nice chilli tingle without being too hot or building.

Chilli heat is subjective of course so go with what you know / prefer.

We have our own Kaffir lime tree, so we have nice big leaves to choose from.. Really wish I weighed them for acccuracy though…

METHOD

Using a microplane, grate the ginger untill you have 25grams and bung it in a large pot.
Slice the chilli and bung it in
Dice the sweet potato into 2cm chunks, doesnt really matter its just to speed up cooking… Chuck em in the pot.
Bung in the stock
Grate in half a nutmeg seed
Bruise and tear (not into small bits) 3 kaffir lime leaves and chuck em in
Squeeze in the juice, then drop in the rind.

Bring to the boil then simmer for about 20 min or until the sweet spuds are soft.

Fish out the lime halves and kaffir lime leaves.

Add the coconut cream, a good handful of basil leaves, the last kaffir lime leaf, sugar, a good wack of pepper and the fish sauce and blend using a stick blender (or transfer it to your blender blender)

Add more basil to taste if you think it needs it.

Verdict
Really happy with this, not sure there is much I would change.

I’ve written the method pretty much exactly the same as I made it..

So with the kaffir lime leaves, I removed them as I initially planned to do, but you could taste somthing was missing so I threw another big leaf in hit it with the stick blender.

This did mean you didnt get a super smooth soup, however it added more flavour and occasionally you would get a bit of leaf that added a bang of flavour.

The sugar was an unplanned planed addition. I’ve made an awesome sweet potato mash which used brown sugar and rum.. So I had both of those in the back of my head if it needed an adjustment to get the flavour right.

The basil was an extra addition that was hit with the blender in the same way as the kaffir lime, wasnt initially planned but finished it off nicely. Same deal. Added flavour over all, and you got the odd hit of basil now and then.

I served it with Pana di casa bread just torn up and chucked in, I like eating soup that way.

Potential tweaks? Perhaps some Kaffir lime rind, Thai Basil instead of normal basil.. And maybe lemon grass to make it more “Thai”

Goodbeer Week Events 2013

On the off chance that anyone actually cares what I’m doing during good beer week :D

Sunday 19th

Going Large: Mountain Goat IPA Dinner at Rockwell and Sons.

Was tossing up doing the Josie Bones event as well, but how much food can one fat man eat in one Afternoon..

Ok plenty, but thats not the point… Probably works out well since the mate I am dragging around good beer week lands back in Melbourne on Sunday morning… He thought it was Saturday night… :D

Monday 20th
Great Beer Buffet at Temple Brewery.

Beer… Buffet… Sounded good to me!

Tuesday 21th

Old Salt Brewing Co. Adventure on the high seas

AND

Moon Dog & Rockwell Collaboration Brew Party

The adventures on the high seas is one of the more unique events of this years GBW.. And quite possibly the stupidest one :D Why? Beer… Boat… Boat… Beer… Am I painting a picture? Maybe a technicolour one?

Luckily it’s only in the bay, and I like boats.. Could be an interesting one though.

I’ve also been to Rockwell and Sons precisely zero times before GBW… and it’s the second time in 3 days. Hard to pass up a Moon dog event.

Wednesday 22nd
Brewers & Chewers at the taphouse.

Was a pretty damn good event last year. We got lucky and had the table with Denise from Moylan’s as well as one of the owners of the taphouse, Guy. So plenty of great beery conversation, only lowlight is Kjetil wouldn’t share the recipe for Sweet Horizon! :D

Thursday 23rd
Believe it or not, no GBW events today. It’s our 9yr anniversary and since no one ran with my excellent idea of a beer widows romantic dinner thing we are going to try out Melba at the Langham..

Friday 24th
Beermen.TV presents: The Hair of the Dog Breakfast

And

GABS!

AND

Stuff…

The Beermen boys are back doing the Hair of the Dog, It’s a cracker of an event and a nice warm up for GABS..

Not sure if we will crash the Arvo session after the brekkie finishes or hit up the Evening session.. But either way.. There are a lot of beers to try.. and so little time to try them!

Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th

Gabs Arvo sessions… Season pass is genius! GENIUS!

GABS 2013 Drinking Order

With GABS 2013 just around the corner its time to try and put together a drinking order list.

This year they are mixing it up… a lot, rather then 4 bars serving all the beers, they have split it up into 6 sections, and the bit I think is a bit silly… each section had about 16 beers.

Now why didn’t they use some common sense and aim for multiples of 5? Each paddle is 5, having a round number makes sense.

I’m on the fence on if this approach is going to be better then last year, but the good thing is the guys were open to change the procedure on the fly if something just wasn’t working, so all going well this idea of theirs pays off.

It does make producing a drinking order a hell of a lot harder.

The approach I have taken, for now anyway, is to put each section in to drinking order. And for now, go section by section.. Or at least, 2 paddles at once from each section as I go.. I am doing 3 sessions so should have plenty of time to try them all.

You can find the official guide here

On to the drinking order… And this may change as I review it, but for now……

Good Beer Week 2013 Event Idea!

With Good Beer Week 2013 being announced today I am once again reminded that my favourite event of the year, happens to be the same week of my Anniversary.. Now I’m pretty sure next year marks 9 long years my poor partner has had to put up with me.

I feel sorry for her, and so should you. She’d probably get less for murder…. :D

Anyway… It got me thinking.

While there are a lot of beery couples out there, there are more partners out there who have to put up with the their significant others stumbling home at 2am after having a big night out…..All week for those of us who are keen! And while 2am may seem early for some… Try catching the last Belgrave train home each night :D

So…. Hopefully a venue likes this idea and runs with it…. How about a “Thank your Partner Beer Event” Of course it will need a better a name, but the idea is basically…. Couples tables, Romantic type setting… Good Beer, and dare I say it… Wine and cocktails… some great food… And an opportunity to thank our significant others for being significant! Oh and very understanding of our late nights and obsession with the nectar of the gods.

Oh… And maybe it should be hosted (or just guests of honour?) by Karen and David Golding from Red Hill Brewery… Icing on the cake!

So being that it is my idea, the 23rd of May would be awesome. But really, I think its a fun concept that gets our partners involved, even if they don’t drink beer, and its a good way to say thanks.

What do you guys think? Feel free to bag it, or love it, in the comments :D

Good Beer Week Drinking Order

I’m sure all us beer Snobs are going to create a list of recommended drinking orders, and there will be much debate about what should go where…

This is the first Draft of my List. Not having tried any of the beers does make it harder. Things like IPA have been ordered purely on IBU. Some I really don’t know the style well enough to make a call.. Some I’ve plain old guessed..

Southern Style Chicken Parma

Not sure where the inspiration for this came from… Was probably from @tifdownunder picking on @parmadaze about eating too much parma… And her being American.. and somehow the idea of doing a souther style chicken parma grew in my head… Yeah I’m weird like that….

Anyway…..

 

Ingredients

  • About 500g of Chicken, I used Thighs.. I know… Not exactly a parma cut but oh so tasty
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1tsp of oregano
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbs of Thyme
  • 1 tbs of ground ginger
  • 1/2 tbs of basil
  • 1 tbs of Celery salt
  • 1 tbs of black pepper
  • 1 tbs of dry mustard
  • 4 tbs of paprika
  • Cornflake crumbs
  • Ham slices
  • Bertoli Parma Sauce
  • Grated Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 cups of milk

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Grease an oven proof dish
  3. In a bowl, combine all the herb’s and spices
  4. In a second bowl place a good wack of the cornflake crumbs
  5. In a third bowl beat the egg then mix in the milk.
  6. Place the chicken in the egg mixture and ensure it is well soaked
  7. Then dip it in the crumbs, then again in to the spices ensuring that it is well covered.
  8. Place chicken in greased oven tray.
  9. Repeat until all the chicken is done.
  10. Cover the grease proof dish with foil and bake for about 30 min, remove the foil, and then for a further 20-30 minutes.
  11. Fire up the grill.
  12. Take chicken and place on a plate that can go in the grill, cover with ham, parma sauce and cheese and grill until cheese has browned.

 

Serve with a good IPA :)

Cooking times vary depending on the chicken you use. Thighs are much thinner then breast so obviously cook quicker. The bertoli parma sauce actually had a decent flavour for a jar based pasta/simmer sauce.  And I do love the flavour/texture of the cornflake crumbs over standard breadcrumbs, no reason you can used whatever sauce or crumbs you like :D

The original recipe I stole the dry mix from also called for MSG, I couldnt find any at my local supermarket and I’m not sure I care, or that it needs it. But if you want to add it, its 2tbs of MSG.
