Rainy and cloudy....so gloomy. Rainy days seem to be meant for soup, don't you think so? This is my throw together soup, trying to halfway decipher a French cookbook, using up bits and leftovers from the fridge.
It honestly is cheat calling this a recipe. Saute some onions, garlic and peppers in herbed olive oil. I also had a few cooked potatoes, green beans, corn and carrots. A can of tomatoes wouldn't go amiss, so those were chunked in too.
As we made rice for a grilled tuna dinner, a bit of the rice was tossed in too. By evening, after it had sat a bit, the rice had absorbed much of the broth. Simple solution - add some more broth and seasonings.
This is different ( not by a lot but it is different) from the Fall River Soup I made last week. I didn't use wine this time and there were different veggies - but any time you can use up veggies on hand, soup is the answer.
This is meant for lunches and maybe as a first course before tonight's dinner.
