Read Time: 4 minutes

If you’re a regular reader of my BLOG, you’ll probably notice that I love to cook and it’s my frequent post too 😍. It’s also one of my stress relief activities apart from many things that I love to do 😂

Anyway, about this recipe – I got this mixed beans product from my very good friend, she brought it all the way from her home town Kazakhstan (Thank you for introducing this product ❤️). And part of me usually would have this moment, trying new dishes and checking what’s on our shelves and when I saw this, I was like, OH MY, I should try this and see how delish is this product.

It’s in Russian – Though I don’t fully understand the Russian language and since I’m learning how to speak Bulgarian; their Cyrillic is pretty much the same, thus I can read and understand some of the words 🤓

Don’t worry if you don’t have this product, I have some alternatives for you – so you can make this delicious soup at home as well 🥣


So let’s talk about this YelliFood…
The Yelli comes from the Baka tribe or what they used to call Pygmies (Central African Foragers). Typically women will sing this song at dawn to enchant the tropical forests and attract wild animals to ensure the day’s successful hunt. Listen to this amazing sound of these women singing: Yelli Song
Interestingly, the company founded by photographer and gourmand, Slava and brought these amazing recipes to the home kitchens…And what I love about this, it’s a healthy product and 100% Natural ingredients.

NOTE: Unfortunately this product, currently unavailable in Singapore and the same thing in the Philippines. But if you’re in the US and selected area in Europe – you can buy it online or supermarkets (info available on their site).

Alright, so let’s get to cooking – shall we?!?

I’m adding Chicken on this mixed beans coz, why not 😄?!?
