We read about “Soupery” in a magazine recently and decided to make the trip down to taste their healthy soups on a lazy Sunday.
Great World City (Food Court), #B1-16/17
Wild mushroom soup ($6.90)
Guinness Beef Stew ($6.90)
If you like your soup to be light and creamless, you’ll probably enjoy the soup here. We prefer slightly thicker beef stew and creamier mushroom soup. We thought it would be a little better if they could be more generous with the beef cubes (We only managed to scoop 5 tiny bits from the bowl of soup).

Bly just love the beautiful murals in Great World City’s toilets.
It was World Vegetarian Day on 1st Oct, we started our meatless day at a nearby vegetarian cafe. 🙂
The Rail Mall, 434 Upper Bukit Timah Road
Hoe with thunder tea rice
Sunny Choice is a nice place for a quick satisfying meat-free meal. Their food is not super stimulating for taste buds but you’ll definitely rejoice in the nourishing and guilt free dishes (Like home-cooking). We’ve also tried the hakka yam abacus, bak kut teh, tahu goreng and pumpkin soup (Quite yummy and we like the way they present their food.
End off with our home made smiley organic potato salad with melted cheese!
Broccoli! It’s our all time favourite. And today, we are going to introduce a new way to enjoy this good food. By the way, if you are crazily in love with broccoli (Like bly), you ought to take note of this. Too much of broccoli will actually cause hyperoxaluria and also interfere in blood thinning medications. Well we guess moderation is the key word when it comes to food.
We tried different version of making broccoli soup and we found a perfect recipe for a rich and flavourful cheesy broccoli soup (We’re going to share with you!). Just by looking at the pictures, you can imagine sipping the mouthwatering flavours of the soup! Oh yes, it definitely satisfies a cheese lover’s cravings!
Ingredients: 1 organic broccoli, 1 onions, 1/3 block of butter, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cheddar cheese, 2 cups organic veg broth, 1 small carrots, 1/2 cup flour
1. Steam broccoli & carrots till soft and toss with olive oil and salt
2. Blend broccoli with veg broth
3. Melt butter and stir-fry onions then pour into blender
4. Melt butter and add flour to achieve roux base
5. Add milk and 1/4 block of cheese and stir to ensure a smooth creamy base
6. Pour in everything from blender
7. Stir and mix well
8. Thicken when necessary
9. Garnish with shredded cheese and a piece of broccoli
(Serves 2 pax)
We’ll be sure to make our own croutons to top with our hearty soups!
Bly wrote down the recipe in our little cookbook and I followed according to each and every step. This is definitely a recipe that’s full of flavour and easy to cook.
Beef is one of our favourite red meat and we use them to cook bulgogi or spaghetti with ground beef (Or mould them into meatballs).
Beef requires much more attention and handling to make sure the meat is cooked to the right tenderness. Definitely chicken and pork are much easier to handle from this perspective.
For our beef stew, we are using tomato puree as a base for the soup instead of beef stock. The sweet and sour tomato puree creates a layered texture as it acts as a contrast to the sweetness of the beef cubes. You just feel like continuing the soup journey to taste what are the other flavours present in the beef stew.
We used extremely lean beef for this beef stew as we want to cut down the fats in our diet. After cooking for 2 hours, our lean beef meat became rock hard cubes. At this stage, you have to persevere and continue to keep it cooking under low heat for another 4-6 hours. It is only after this long process where the collagen in the beef breaks down and you will achieve tenderized juicy beef cubes!
Here’s the recipe! Simply delicious!
It’ll be a long weekend for us! We really are more than just happy to take a break from work. It had probably eaten a whole big chunk of me over the past few months and I almost lost myself in the midst of my busy working schedule. Okay, I’m back! ((=
And ya, I’ve been eagerly searching tips for my extremely occupied mind. And this is a great link:
Opps! Sorry for sidetracking!
If you are a die hard fan of
less messy non-flaky and soft buttery croissant, what ARE you WAITING for? I especially enjoy peeling the pretty layers and yum yum yum! It’s making me hungry.
We’ll recommend the croque monsieur and croissant. Give it a try when you happen to swing by Tiong Bahru area and the new outlet (Picture above) at Raffles City.
End off with Utt saying bye bye to all! Ciao~
