Rainbow Roasted Vegetable Soup

Whenever I feel that I don’t eat enough vegetables, this is what I’ll make. This hearty soup contains vegetables in variety of colours – red, orange, yellow, green and white – which give the soup different phytonutrients (beneficial nutrient for the human body and what gives food their colour).

Pandan Chicken - New Malaysian Kitchen

Thai Pandan Chicken

Although I’ve dined Rama V only once, I remembered it well. It was a beautiful restaurant furnished with wooden interior, surrounded by ponds with lotus blossoms and offered delectable Thai food. Naturally, I’m delighted to get my hands on Rama V Cookbook and marked many simpler recipes with post-it notes such as Tom Yum Kung, Thai-styled grilled …
