SPRING SOUP


I was in love with this soup when I saw it on a television show recently, I know my family will surely love them.

Spring soup cooked with your choice of vegetables with a bit of onion and seasoned with freshly ground black pepper makes a refreshing, surprisingly hearty meal.

An addition of milk will soften and enrich the soup To jazz up this soup you may add a dash of hot sauce, some shreds of cooked bacon/ chicken or a sprinkle of fresh chopped herbs like parsley or thyme.

SPRING SOUP
Yield :   6-8 servings

2.5 cups mixed vegetables (carrot, french bean, cauliflower)
2 onion chopped
2 potato mashed
6 cups water/stock
1 TB all purpose flour
2 TB olive oil
1 cup milk
salt to taste
fresh ground black pepper
4 TB grated cheese (optional)


METHOD

Heat  the oil in a deep saucepan, add the onion, saute until translucent.

Add in mixed vegetables, stir for 2 minutes, add 5 cups water and bring to boil. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Mix flour with the balance of water, make sure there is no lump..

Now mix in mashed potato, milk and flour mixture,bring to a slow boil.

Season with black pepper and salt, when ready to serve, ladle into bowls or mugs, top with  grated cheese.

Just what the doctor recommended! I'm sick with a bad case of flu and I really wish someone would make me soup now. Love how you served it in individual tea-cups--perfect for cozying up.

In Italy spring seems to be so far (it's very very cold)... but your soup is lovely in the same way :)
I'd like to tell you that my contest 'Madeleines mon amour' is online and you could download it.
If you pass to Filosoficamente sostenibile you could find the way for downloading.
Thanks and good days

:)
