I found this recipe on a lovely lady’s blog who recently passed away. I've been looking for a spinach and potato soup recipe ever since a friend made it for me, so I thought I would honor this lady’s memory by trying it. The blog is here in case you're interested: http://oldageisabitch.blogspot.com
Taken from the Epicure section of The Age newspaper, which in turn was taken from a grandmothers recipe book, this is an absolutely fast and delicious dessert best served with cream or ice-cream. You can substitute the golden syrup for some other sugar syrup like honey or maple but it will be a LOT sweeter.
I have a vegetable delivery box, and this week came a lot of tomatoes and eggplant, so I conjured this one up with great success - my partner loved it and he hates eggplant! The roasted tomatoes collapse and make a sauce of their own which the eggplant absorbs - delicious and simple!
I first had this dessert on an island in Thailand in 2003. This recipe is from Appon's Thai Food Recipes website. It says to serve it hot, but I personally prefer it chilled as I think the taro has time to soak in the sugar.
