About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Chopped celery, onions, garlic, red bell pepper, and tomatoes. Set aside.

In a soup pot on high heat. Added tablespoons olive oil.

Then I add in onions and garlic. Saute them for 4 minutes.

I added the rest of my veggies and saute them for another 3-4 minutes.

I added my chicken. Stirred everything together well. Low heat to medium. 

Added 2 quarts water, 4 cubes of chicken bouillon, 1 can tomato, 1 cup of my homemade salsa............ 

Added 2 tablespoons lime juice

Boiled for 5 minutes. Then cover and let simmer for about half hour.

Half hour later, added fresh chopped coriander leaves. Simmer for 12 minutes.

Serve hot. Topped with cheddar mozzarella cheese. Could also topped with tortilla chips or could of add long grain rice.
