Inspired by Dorie Greenspan's chowder recipe... 
This time with chickpeas, and moringa leaves (from my sister's young plant).

CC#41: Gingered meatballs soup with pasta

Adapted this recipe for minced pork instead of minced turkey meat.
My adaptation :
To one beaten egg in big bowl,  a tablespoon of Greek yogurt, a tablespoon of plain white bread crumbs, a teaspoon each of minced garlic, chopped small onion,  minced fresh ginger,  minced fresh cilantro. A pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well. Added RM3.00 worth of minced meat.  Mix well, and leave for 10 mins. 
Shape into balls using two tablespoons and drop directly into simmering broth. My broth was simmered carrot and cabbage. Served with wholemeal pasta. Hubby approved of the meatballs,  very tender.

CC41: Chinese-style bashed cucumber

A very simple salad to make when that is all you feel like making...
Added grape tomatoes for color and bulk.  This salad pairs well with my other dish of
braised sea cucumber with 3 layer pork and shitake mushrooms, and five grain rice
