Dandelion Soup

My review rating: 3 of 5 stars
Wonderful, light-heartedly written, surprising and funny. I recommend it warmly to those who still believe there is such a thing as coincidence. This book is about proving that everything happens for a reason and openness and communication is the key to it all.

'Recipe for Dandelion Soup:

- fistful of garbanzos
- clutch of white beans
- handful of dandelions
- two wide-brimmed hatfuls of spring water
- a slosh of olive oil- some slivers of monastery beef
- two cloves of silvery garlic
- one enourmous wrinkled tomato
- an old potato
- one stout stick for stirring

Soak the beans overnight. Toss the beef in a pan with the olive oil and stir until cooked. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for three hours over a fire of pine cones and olive branches until the beans are tender. Sprinkle with dandelion petals.

Eat in the best company under a sky of stars.'
