Provencal Soup

3 Apr


With Michael away for the next week, I finally get to eat all of my favorite meals that he hates! Our biggest dispute is over soup. I love soup but Michael doesn’t feel that soup is a real meal. But he’s away so I get to eat all the soup I want!

Ina Garten’s Provencal Vegetable Soup is one of my absolute favorites. I could eat it everyday and never get sick of it. I don’t make any major modifications to the recipe, except that I make extra Pistou and use whole wheat noodles instead of semolina. I find the potato/noodle combination particularly filling so I reduce the amount of noodles.

You can find the recipe on Food Network


This delicious salad accompanied my yummy soup. I was at my sister’s house and she had this amazing salad dressing by Salad Girl in Crisp Apple Maple. You can find it at Whole Foods in the refrigerated area of the produce section. I highly recommend trying it!


As always, enjoy!

    This looks so delicious, I am also a Soup and Salad Girl…oh btw, thanks for introducing me to a new term: PISTOU… We have a term for it here in México (or maybe my mom made it up, jijiji) which is RECAUDO, a mix of herbs, onion, garlic and olive oil to season the broth before adding meat and/or vegetables…bon apetit, buen provecho, Alexandra
