    littleturtle's Note:

    This recipe came from a Pennsylvania Slovak (Carpatho-Rusyn) cookbook, so it's probably not authentic French (it was listed in the Modern & Unusual section of the book which kind of indicates to me it's more of a modern faux French recipe, though there is a legacy of French influence in Slavic cooking dating back to Catherine the Great), but it is a simple and hearty, meatless soup. It was called Soupe Française in the book, but I believe it's better known as the provencal Soupe au Pistou, a vegetable soup seasoned with basil, garlic, and olive oil as this one is. Serve with crusty French bread.
