Garlic Piperade Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

I first made this over twenty years ago--a Marian Morash recipe from the 1982 Victory Garden Cookbook. It was good then; it's good now. A Basque recipe, one can substitute chicken or vegetable stock for the beef stock.

So good! Next day poached eggs in the left overs, very nice!
