I am a big fan of homemade tomato soup. Its full of tangy, sweet, salty goodness. Not to mention the loads of vitamins and anti oxidants. Using cherry tomatoes have 2 main advantages – It tastes more crisp (you’ll know what I mean when you try it!) and its alot more convenient. No slicing and dicing. Its a pretty fast recipe to whip up when you need that soup fix!
I’ve been wanting to try this recipe again for sometime. I tried it years ago after seeing it on TV but added my own mix of spices and it turned out pretty darn good, which is a miracle of sorts since I don’t like cauliflower! As an additional bonus, the soup is amazingly creamy without actually needing to add cream or milk. Easy and quick recipe that is healthy and fuss free.
This is a very personal, nostalgic and meaningful recipe to me. It was something which I cooked for my mom while she was ill and the last thing I prepared for her. I added some twists to my original recipe since. It remains a simple, tasty and heartfelt dish, perfect for rainy weather and cold nights.
3 types of Japanese soya based sauces, 2 cuts of pork (shoulder and mined) and 1 type of noodles.

The combination of the 3 sauces gives the soup a rich, complex taste that’s simply satisfying.
Bak Kut Teh (roughly pronounced as Bark Cute Tee) literally means pork rib tea, in reference to how it was traditionally made. Nowadays, the 2 main varieties are pepper based and herbal based. I was trying out a stew using Marmite and ended up with a very rich and fully flavored broth. So here’s my version of Bak Kut Teh, with Marmite.
Tomatoes, peas, corn, onion and spicy meatballs equates to a hearty, healthy meal fantastic for a cold, rainy day. Easy peasy (pun intended) recipe done up in no time.
Who says comfort food can’t be luxurious? With snapper belly, tiger prawns and Hokkaido scallops immersed in a smooth coconut broth, there’s no space for blues.
