Australian cuisine is known for its unique dishes which are adapted from various cultures around the world, including British, European, Asian, and Middle Eastern, and that is due to large-scale immigration to Australia.
Chicken and corn soup
Chicken and corn soup is prepared with onions, potatoes, chicken stock, flour, water, cooked chicken, cream, corn, and flavorings such as salt, pepper, thyme, and cayenne pepper if desired.
There are many recipes for this soup, so ingredients may vary from one cook to another.
It is served warm, and bread on the side.
Pumpkin soup is made from a purée of pumpkin. It is made by combining the meat of a blended pumpkin with broth or stock. It is best served in the colder months, and easiest to find when you head south.
Add a Granny Smith apple, for an authentic Australian version.
Pea and ham soup
The pea & ham soup has British origins.
The soup is made using dried split peas, then it is slow-cooked, you can use also frozen peas.
As well as peas, cubes of cooked ham are used, (also the perfect way to use up any leftover baked ham) which gives the soup the perfect texture.
Serve with warm bread and mint butter.
Also, you can add sliced frankfurters or smoked sausage to make it even more hearty.
