  1. Absolutely delicious quick to make and few ingredients. Very good on budget for gourmet tasting soup.<br/><br/>I served this to my lunch guests with a small dollop of sour cream. Will defiantly serve this at the kitchen I work in with delicious summer tomatoes.
  2. What a great technique for making soup. Roasting the vegetables is not only great for flavor it's efficient with time, effort and cleanup. After roasting I removed the tomato and pepper skins but it may have been better if I hadn't. I'm looking forward to tasting this made with next summer's fresh tomatoes.
  3. I doubled this recipe and used oregano instead of sage. Delicious, healthy, and easy. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for sharing this one FlemishMinx!!!! It is a hit in our household and that's for sure! I made this up and served it with fresh french bread and it was soooooooooo good. Very fresh and nummy. I love to cook and especially if I can make something that's really special and have to say, this recipe fits the bill!!! It will be on my list of often prepared soups. So simple, yet so impressive. Plus, it's guilt free. Once again, thank you :)
  5. I added cloves of garlic, like some of the previous reviews had suggested. This soup was nice but not totally my cup of tea. However, my husband went nuts over this and ate the whole bowl so 4 stars it is! I will make this again for him. Thank you!

  2. What a fantastic tasty soup. The only change I made was to use homemade chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. I will be making this over and over again as I am a big fan of soups, especially to take to work in my packed lunch I can see this becoming a firm favourite, thanks for posting


I am an American married to a Belgian, and have lived in Belgium since December 1999. Cooking is my major hobby. I'm also an avid reader, but I have difficulty finding the time. I love to travel. Since moving to Europe I've been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to go a couple of times per year to Paris, as well as having visited London, Rome, Florence, Naples, Amsterdam, and of course Brussels and Antwerp. I've seen at least parts of most regions of France, as well as parts of Germany, Austria, a great deal of Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Luxembourg, and Monaco. I'm absolutely in love with the Bay of Naples and Sorrento coast areas of Italy, which my husband and I recently re-visited on a trip that included Rome, Puglia, Umbria and Marche. I'm still looking forward to Ireland, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic . . . the list is too long ! One of the bonuses of travel is getting to taste the local cuisine, and afterward trying to figure out how to duplicate it at home. I think cooking is one of the nicest things a person can do for someone they love (including themself!) I had to submit a picture with me and my cat, Sophie, as she insists on sitting in my lap when I'm sitting at the computer. If you are wondering what all that stuff hanging on the wall behind us in the photo is, it is just a small part of my husband's military medal collection. He was appalled by my posting this picture-- Our study is the messiest room in our house (thank god!)
