there are a few things I want to tell you about this soup.
- it has an incredible amount of prep. If you have a rockin’ chef knife and love cutting veg this is for you. Peppers, corn, tomatoes, onion, celery…
- it was gleaned from a new favorite foodsite. I don’t know how I had never heard of this site before. It is run by foodies who are collecting peoples best recipes to publish in a cookbook. Really.
- it is really unusually good. You saute the veg in bacon fat and their own juice before adding some milk and cream. It has an unusual addition of allspice which I was thrilled to find I only had in whole spice so ‘had’ to crush with my mortar & pestle.
I will admit I didn’t read the recipe but bought the ingredients based on the photo in the blog. My cooking sometimes begins with my eyes.
