Balinese Cooking Class- Hot and Sour

Every year I go on a trip and try to take away a new recipe. Most recently I was in Bali, Indonesia, and I thought, “what better way to get some inspiration for healthy eating then to attend a Balinese cooking class”!

I will share a warm, colourful recipe that is fitting for those cold winter days we have in Toronto.

Light, fresh, and green meals are what I crave for and these Balinese flavours satisfy all three at the same time! This easy-to-make recipe can be made as a main or a side dish. It is a Bali special- hot and sour vegetable soup!


The soup features chili pepper, lemon, and hearty vegetables tossed in a light vegetable broth.

It is  is filled with Balinese flavour and bright colours. The ingredients and instructions are provided below, why not give it a try!?


  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 1 small carrot
  • String beans
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 5 shallots
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 hot chili (to taste)
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Slice mushrooms, green beans, garlic, spring onion and shallots. Cube the carrots into centimeter pieces. Slice the chili and remove its seeds. Cut the lemon into slices.
  2. Sauté garlic, shallots, and spring onion until light brown. Add mushrooms and chili and continue to sauté.
  3. Pour in the vegetable stock and squeeze the lemon slices over the stock.
  4. Bring the stock to a boil then add the carrots, green beans with a dash of salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Ready to Serve!
