AWED-Portuguese Roundup

My hearty thanks to Dk of Chef In You  who was quite kind enough towards me and letting me to host the famous A World Epicurian Delights quiet known as AWED..Thanks a ton DK, i really enjoyed trying portuguese dishes and receiving from my blogger dears...

Honestly i was quite scared after choosing portuguese as theme for December's AWED Event, but fortunately my friends didnt let me down... After seeing my blogger friend's entries i was really happy and very thankful to each and everyone for taking part in this quiet new cuisine for many of us eventhough its really a very old  cuisine..Portuguese peoples are quite carnivore, each and every food of portuguese cuisine almost goes for sausage prepared basically with pork which take really an important place in their cooking, needless to say that this portuguese cuisine is completely a challenging cuisine and my blogger friends were really amazing for choosing and trying many delectable vegetarian, eggtarian and vegan dishes which is completely a  hard task..I got 19entries for this AWED-Portuguese event, thanks a ton to my blogger friends for joining my hands and turned this event really fantabulous...Am starting my roundup with soups and finishing with desserts prepared with eggs...

1) Caldo Verde from Dk of Chef in You, the famous kale portuguese soup where DK replaced the sausages with tempeh, quite creative na!!
2) Sopa De Aborbra E Cenoura/Pumpkin & Carrot Soup from Swathi of Zest South Indian Kitchen, creamy soup with pumpkin & carrots, quite a delicious soup for this chilled weather..
