Restless by nature, on a whim I blew off city living and my career, to try my hand at a simpler-slower life in rural Tasmania. It's going to be one heck of a learning curve..join me as I find my feet, fingers crossed!

The humble cauli...

Spiced cauli & coconut soup.
(slightly blended version)

Fresh from the organic farm, the cauliflower looks destined for our lunch.
Not in the mood, for a complicated dish, soup wins out.  
Ten minutes later & it's done.
It's fresh, sings with simplicity & has a slightly acidic finish on the palate.
Checkout the recipe below...yummo.....
