Mmm, National Soup Month

In the long cold days of winter there is nothing more soothing than sitting down to a warm bowl of soup and a glass of wine. Soups chock full of ingredients and flavor are hearty and heating, yet sometimes a simple soup that highlights the goodness of one or two vegetables is the only way to go. I first heard about this technique when I read French Women Don't Get Fat.

Apparently one of the reasons French women stay so thin is because they eat a lot of simple vegetable soups. I propose that tonight we all pretend we are French by enjoying a no frills simple cream of broccoli soup that reader Colormesticky requested. To be French for a night, and to celebrate National Soup Month,

I love soup and actually have tried the Leak soup from "French Women Don't Get Fat." It was very boring but I can see why they are so skinny! Lol. I love leaks so I didn't mind it much. I'm eager to check out the Japanese version.
