I didn't have an idea before today to make a soup for @Qurator's Hive Top Chef this week because I didn't have ingredients to make it. This morning I walked to the market a bit far from my apartment, I saw they have papayas for sales today.
They have only sweet papayas and old papayas, no green papaya. Suriname is really difficult to buy green papaya in the store or market, so I take one old papaya. I want to make papaya soup but I do not have lemongrass, so I think not have lemongrass, it’s okay.
We know a house have lemongrass growing near the China store close to our room. When I come back home with my husband we go to ask the people to buy a little lemongrass from the people but they give me free. This recipe is all Ital, so is okay for vegetarians and vegan people.
