The simplicity of Soup



“Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite.”
Our dear friend Auguste Escoffier was right, nothing better than a bowl of soup! When I don’t feel like cooking (untrue, when I don’t feel like getting the kitchen into a battle field again) I reach out to the fridge and finally Spoon meets Pot :-).

The great thing about soup is, just add toasted bread some cheese, ham of whatever leftover you have and there is an easy meal. In the Soup case I tend to go with Color pairing instead of food pairing, all greens go well together, reds and so on ;-).
This morning I went to the market in Lille ( yes Darya  –– I finally went 🙂 ) and it was wonderful, real cheese, shiny vegetables, heaven on a low budget 😉

Here we go:

Heat some olive oil, add 1 chopped onion, 2 chopped Zucchini’s – Courgettes and whatever green vegetable you have left in your fridge.
Add some chicken or vegetable stock, leave to cook. This morning I found fresh Corn Bread on the market. Pretty good.
So heat some olive oil, add the bread to brown, cover with fresh Goat’s cheese, chives and that’s it !

  1. I am glad you enjoyed the market! I love its crazy atmosphere, especially when the weather is nice! I got lazy and didn’t go to get fish, but then they have a smaller market on Tuesday and Thursday mornings if I really need something! And I love your soup, it looks so fresh!
