I am soup mad and this was great - I had to sub lentils for the haricot beans and added a green pepper but made no other changes - great for a wintry Melbourne Sunday like today - made and greatly enjoyed for ZWT5
Merci! Veggie soup is one of our favorites, this will be great during soup season. The pisto really brings it to life. I didn't have fresh basil, so used canned pisto and it was okay and used canned beans. This summer when I have lots of fresh basil, I will certainly make again. Made for the Epicurean Queen Team, ZWT5. My picture didn't turn out as good as Sarah's so I'll not post. Thanks for a real keeper.
This soup is tres bon! What I particularly like is the amount of veggies that are packed in to one bowl of soup. I used a can of haricot beans which worked fine. The only real change I made to the recipe was to use a can of chopped tomatoes and to use a cooking spray in place of the oil in the first part of the recipe. Also, I confused the recipe with another soup recipe for a moment and had some dried tarragon out on the counter. So, I did put a bit of that in and it tasted as if it did belong with the other seasoning. The pistou really is the star of the recipe as it added a lovely depth to the soup. I served a fresh baguette along side bowls of the soup for a very tasty and healthy evening meal. Made for Chow Hounds on ZWT5.
I made this exactly as posted for an Autumn supper for my parents (who are vegetarians) and I. It was lovely, packed full of vegetables. I cheated and used a pistou I bought from the deli, other than that it was made as posted. We ate this with crusty bread and some grated cheese on top. Made for Aussie Recipe Swap #33, merci Pneuma!
