I have been looking at this week's recipe
for the longest time
wondering about the pastis
asking about the pastis
looking around for the pastis
to no avail ... until a fellow Dorista
mentioned 'Pernod' !
After consulting with Mr Google
I bought a 70cl bottle of Ricard!
I used a total of about 5 tablespoons of it...
very healthy otherwise
cos it has no butter or cream in the list of ingredients
*olive oil, onions, garlic, carrots, fennel
whole tomatoes from a can, tomato paste
thyme, bay leaf, orange zest, saffron threads
salt and pepper*
I was actually tempted (at some point)
not to puree the soup but went ahead with it
gosh this was a time consuming recipe
with three parts
that I had no time nor energy for attempting a make-up!
This above was my dinner tonight
it was nice!
