A good basic soup. I used smoked pork ribs ( about 250-300g) added a stick of celery, a potatoe(makes the end result creamier) and a finely chopped fresh green chilly. I grow my own herbs and added a boquet garni of sage, thyme and ropsemary tied up with string. Oh yes, added the onion whole with a few cloves stuck into it, I think a nice tart apple would also add interest, a Granny Smith here in South africa. Lovely rich soup for a blustery winters day
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I live in a beautiful village on the island of Malta ( Europe) with my wonderful daughter, partner and two cats. I love the vineyards infront of my house or walking down to the valley of olive trees. ( I do pick olives every year) Some years ago I stopped working as a chef but still do a lot of home cooking. What I miss are the expensive ingredients I worked with, its rather hard cooking on a tight budget. My aim is to produce recipes that are very economical and yet nutritious. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <embed src="http://babystrology.com/tickers/baby-ticker-glass.swf?parent=Mommy&year=2010&month=7&day=28&babycount=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="120" height="180"></embed>
