Dinner Tonight: Six Vegetable Soup
This is the vegetable soup you would have never eaten as a kid. I mean, it's all vegetables, with absolutely no meat in sight. Potatoes take up the bulk of each bite, with tomatoes lending some color and much needed acidity. But I like to think I've grown since then, and while the desire to make a huge batch of vegetable soup doesn't strike often, I can now say that I have a solid recipe when needed.
Like most of my favorite soup recipes, this one comes from Barbara Kafka's Soup: A Way of Life. It couldn't be easier. Plus, since the prime spring vegetables are about a month from appearing in markets, this a great soup for using the heartier winter vegetables. Make sure to add a hefty slug of hot sauce—it really makes every bite pop.
