I'm currently typing this from my study desk, gazing out the window at the old house across the street that is on the verge of being demolished. 🏚 My eyes can't believe the hilarious chaos unfolding before me: the property owner is outside, battling the pouring rain, sporting a white plastic poncho and dress shoes, and he's frantically attempting to dig out a rosebush at the entryway. Here's the chaotic part: a demolition worker is shouting at him from a huge bulldozer that's reversing off a truck and heading straight in his direction. This is the most excitement I've witnessed on our street in a while. To cut the story short, no one was harmed in the rosebush rescue, and it seems the rosebush lives to bloom another day! 😂 Anyway, that wasn't exactly the intro I had in mind for today, but it was just too good not to share. Now, let's dive into today's newsletter goodies...

Chicken Mexican-Style Soup with a Zingy Coriander Vinaigrette

✨ Chicken Mexican-Style Soup with a Zingy Coriander Vinaigrette

Here's an easy, healthy, and vibrantly flavour-packed soup recipe you'll want to make again and again. It's perfect for family meals or casual get-togethers and is a regular feature on our kitchen table.

This hearty dish combines tender chicken mince with a medley of aromatic spices, sweet corn, and a delicious mix of beans. Topped with a zingy Coriander Vinaigrette, creamy avocado, and a dollop of thick Greek yoghurt.

It makes the perfect "anytime of year" soup – hearty and warming for the cooler months, yet fresh and zingy enough for the warmer ones. It's just perfect!

It's also easy to prepare and ideal for meal prep. It can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and freezes beautifully.
