Europeans love their soup, as anyone who traveled to Eastern Europe would agree that soup in part of every lunch and dinner menu.
Soups are quite simple to prepare, and very nutritious as well. You can make your own stock, as the base for every soup, or use the ready-made available at your grocer. There is such a variety of broth now…chicken, beef, vegetable, low-fat, low sodium….so it makes it that much easier to get your soup cooking together.
Every time I see a ready assembled vegetable platter at a grocery store, just to pick up and go to a party, I cringe at its cost. I think it mostly reflects the price of labor, rather than the value of the veggies.
It doesn’t take a culinary genius to cut up raw vegetables, and to arrange them on a platter.
