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.

Roasted garlic, broccoli, macaroni, and cheese soup

 My homemade roasted garlic, broccoli, macaroni, and cheese soup. Great for this kind of day. My son had been begging me to make this, " Mommy could you please make your broccoli macaroni cheese soup?" Anything for my little boy.

2 tablespoons corn starch
2 tablespoons wheat flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup måt fløte ( food cream)

2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
2 clove garlic, minced

3 cups fresh broccoli, cut into small bite size
1 cup cooked macaroni (boil and drain)
salt and pepper for taste
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cup shredded Tine Edamer cheese or Jarlsberg cheese
1/2 cup shredded white cheddar
dash nutmeg

In a bowl add in wheat flour, corn starch then slowly stir in milk and måt fløte just whisk and mix until well blended and set a side.

Bring water to a boil in a pot, boil broccoli for 5 minutes until slightly tendered, drain and set aside.

In another pot, heat butter over medium heat. When butter melts add in garlic and onion, sauteed for 5-6 minutes, and transfer to a plate, set a side.

In the same pot add in flour mixture and chicken broth (I added in extra måt fløte about 3 tablespoons). Cook, stirring constantly until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat to low/simmer, add in salt, pepper, sauteed garlic and onion, broccoli, and cooked macaroni. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in shredded cheese and nutmeg, cook until cheese melts. Serve right away.
