One of the very few times I've taken photos of food preparation stages. Saw an example of this by 'Bertrand' on the "Recipes to Share" group, and decided to try making my own montage.
Recipe courtesy of Covent Garden Soup Company's "Soup and beyond" cookbook.
1 tbsp sunflower/olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cumin seeds, lightly roasted and ground
1 tsp coriander seeds, lightly roasted and ground
2 tbsp sesame seeds, lightly roasted
~1cm fresh ginger, finely grated
1 chilli, seeded and chopped
zest and juice of 1 lime
1 tsp of honey
2 large or 3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1" cubes
1 butternut squash, peeled and diced into 1" cubes
1.2 litres vegetable stock (I use Marigold organic veg stock for preference)
400g chickpeas (1 tin of pre-cooked, or use ~250-300g dried chickpeas that have been soaked and boiled)
salt and pepper
yoghurt and coriander leaves to garnish
1. Gently cook the onion and garlic in a covered saucepan for 10 min without colouring.
2. Stir in the spices, sesame seeds, ginger, chilli, lime zest and honey. Allow to warm up for ~30 seconds.
3. Add the sweet potato, butternut squash, juice of half a lime and the stock.
4. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 min.
5. Add the chickpeas and simmer for another 10 min.
6. Add the remaining lime juice and allow the soup to cool slightly before liquidising it.
7. Warm up the purée and garnish with some coriander leaves.
8. Serve with a swirl of yoghurt or crème fraiche.

Those cake and pizza taught me something cool about editing. :) Enjoy!
By the request of NYC.andre, here's the recipe:
– 2.5 dl wheat flour
– 2 dl sugar
– 2.5 dl oatmeal
– 2 dl coconut flakes
– 125 g unsalted butter
– 2 tbsp light syrup
– 0.5 dl milk
– half tsp baking soda
– 1tbsp boiling water
Heat the oven to 175 °C.
Mix the flour, coconut flakes, sugar and oatmeal in a bowl.
Melt butter, mix with syrup until even mixture. Boil some water and
mix about a tablespoonful with the baking soda and then pour them into the
butter mixture. Add the mixture and milk into the bowl on top of other ingredients.
Form a tablespoonful dough into balls and press them flat on the baking tray.
Leave some space between the cookies to expand.
Bake them until they've acquired a nice, even shade of brown.
