I recently needed a soup for my daughter who wasn't feeling well. There was leftover ham in the fridge but my usual ham and potato soup included milk or cream, which is not the best thing for a touchy tummy, so this quick soup was born. The amount of the various ingredients is very flexible so don't worry if you use more or less of any one ingredient. The name comes from the traditional mix for Mirepoix which includes onions, celery, carrots and often ham or bacon.
I found the basis for this recipe years ago and have revised it over the years. Try this tasty rice with fish or chicken. I prefer to use a good quality long grain rice, especially Jasmine, but any rice will do.
I found the basis for this meatloaf in the Woman's Day 12-volume Encyclopedia of Cookery that I bought in 1966, 1 book a week, at the grocery store. I have adjusted it over time to reflect today's health issues, such as lower salt and fat. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that the proportions are always right, so it can be used as the basis for meat balls, and other loaves such as ham, chicken, salmon or whatever comes to mind.
