    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the leeks, potato, onion, celery, zucchini, green beans, and carrots into 1/4-inch dice.
    2. 2
      In a 6-quart stockpot, combine 3 tablespoons of the olive oil with the water. Add the vegetables and saute over medium-low heat until all the water evaporates. Do not brown the vegetables.
    3. 3
      Add the stock and bring to a boil. Cook at a gentle boil for 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, in a food processor fitted with the metal blade, put the tomatoes, basil, garlic, and remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Pulse until pureed.
    5. 5
      Stir the puree into the cooked soup. Do not let the soup return to a boil. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Serve the soup hot or cold from a tureen or in individual bowls.
    6. 6
      Cook's Note: My mother uses only water, because her vegetables are peak-of-season, just-picked, and therefore full of flavor; but you can use stock if you like. Pistou, the puree of tomatoes, basil, garlic, and olive oil in this recipe, is a traditional French condiment that adds a burst of flavor just before serving.

      Delicious soup! Simple but it had loads of flavor. I followed the directions as written, except for the celery because the celery thief "took it all to work for snack" ! But it did not detract from the flavor. I will make this soup again - it was quickly prepared and it's great the next day. Thanks for posting - made for your 2012 Football Pool Week #4 win !
