My associations with soup are inextricably linked to childhood and a familiar red and white can.
Now, I employ a soup-making method much like the mix and match approach my mother applied to get us dressed and off to school with ease-find Part A, then
find a complementary Part B, and top it off with matching
Considering the essential role herbs play in developing full taste, I set out on a grass and vegetable matchmaking spree.
For each of the following recipes, I sought the right herbs to bring out the best
flavors of the ingredients and the texture and color seemed to fall
into place naturally.
Of course, I think these soups are much more exciting than the corduroy and turtleneck combos of the 70’s, but that’s up to you to decide for yourself.
