If anyone knows me well enough, they know that I am a soup fiend, fanatic, aficionado... I should write and Ode to Soup! I am aching for some semblance of summer to come back, as of right now, it feels distinctly fall. It is so cold and rainy outside. I am not ready for boots and coats just yet!
Aveline has been sick and I think there is nothing more soothing than a nice bowl of soup. She has been wanting to try eggplant, and when I think of eggplant I think of ratatouille! So here is my recipe for Ratatouille Soup!
lots of garlic
1 can White beans
can of cooked, diced tomatoes (I used the garlic oregano ones)
2 Cans of vegetable broth
Fresh ground pepper
rosemarin, thyme, marjoram, parsley
White cooking wine
Sautee' all of the vegetables in olive oil, salt, pepper and cooking wine. Add the cans of beans and tomatoes. Cook for a little while longer. Add the herbs to taste. Add vegetable broth, put the lid on the pot and cook for about 30 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and grated parmesan to taste.
Hope this makes your day a little cozier. I know it will make mine!
