Soup’s On: Late Summer Minestrone
Just a quick note: I’m a bit late on this, but last in last week’s NYT food section, I cut out the recipe for Mark Bittman’s “Late Summer Minestrone.” It’s easy enough to saute veggies and then add a lot of water, but I’m not sure I’ve ever had a minestrone so light and so sweet. The flavor reminded me how delicious zucchini flavored water is (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it). It also occurs to me that is nothing like the soup I had in Florence, but then again I think this is another thing entirely. Now that fall’s approaching—and it made a bit of gesture today—we all have to step up our soup game, and that’s REAL.
