Vegetable Soup Addendum
Mark Bittman, who is a New York Times food correspondent and one of my favorite recipe writers, has published a great article about creating different kinds of vegetable soups.
He says, “I’m not anti-recipe (obviously), but some things just don’t need them — and most vegetable soups fall into that category. Here are easy-to-follow instructions for making vegetable (vegetarian and, for the most part, vegan) soups with common ingredients, a variety of choices and terrific flavor. Print the following page, stick it on your refrigerator and work your way through it. By the time you’re done — 12 days or 12 weeks later — you’ll never again need a recipe for vegetable soup. Promise.”
I’m with you, Mark!
