FFwD ~ Provençal Vegetable Soup

 This Friday's recipe was
chosen by TeresaM
 some minor changes:
I used water, canned chickpeas
(sweet basil, rosemary, oregano 
from my balcony garden!)
and spaghetti pasta broken into small lengths
used store bought pesto
(cos I need to finish the balance in the bottle! apologies!)
I like my soup watery
this time I remembered my manners
and did not slurp but delicately ate this 
with a spoon till the very end!!


It is the pesto that makes this soup tasty!
I LikeD!

I think that the pesto certainly helps and is a reason to always have a jar handy. But I also think that the soup holds up even on its own. Darn tasty for some broth and a few veggies.

We loved it, sorry I cut the recipe in half. Who knew? Yours looks

I enjoyed the pesto addition…it added an extra layer of flavor to the soup! This soup was delicious! Yours looks lovely!

I guess with pesto in it you can get away with water. Good to note that.

We enjoyed this one also. Made for good leftovers.

I really liked this too! Glad that you enjoyed. I thought about using prepared pesto, but since I didn't have any, and had a whole bunch of basil on the counter...
Your soup looks beautiful. Love the photo of all of the veggies.

glad you enjoyed this Emily, I LOVED the pesto in it,... could have doubled the amount of pesto we made for as good as it was!

I agree, the pesto definitely makes the soup!

I didn't try the pesto in this - if I make this again, I will need to try it.

Thanks for the shout out, Emily! :)

I finally got 'round to posting about this soup this week. I think you're right, you can't do without the pesto or it's under-seasoned. It's just the sort of soup I like. Yours looks elegant.
