This week was perfect for soup. We got a huge rain storm in the Bay area earlier this week, which is when I made this soup. I needed to bring a pot of soup to my P.E.O. meeting, and I was thrilled to see Lobster and Fishsticks chose this recipe for this week's Craving Ellie in My Belly.
I already had everything I needed to make this and came home a little early to make it before the meeting. I kept looking at the recipe, thinking "is this it?" It was so easy! I used fresh sage and rosemary from my garden, and doubled the recipe. After our meeting, this is all that was left (which was fortunate, since I'm a closet blogger and hadn't taken a photo!)
I went easy on the herbs and salt as I was afraid of overdoing it, and that was a big mistake. You may also consider grating some lemon rind into the soup, or finishing it with my favorite secret weapon, a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. It was even better the next day.
This is my new go-to vegetable soup recipe. If you'd like to give it a try, you'll find the recipe here.
