Before I post a Portuguese beans recipe that a fellow blogger asked me, I´d like to share a combination of vegetables for soup that I often cook in cold days:
Vegetables in the picture:
~ French Garlic
~ Cabbage (Couve Lombarda)
~ Olive oil and salt
I cook a soup base with two medium onions, two potatoes, olive oil and salt. Blend it well. Then, I cut all vegetables in very small pieces and add to the soup base.
I add one cup of water, rectify salt, and let it cook for 30 minutes.
It´s a very good combination of vegetables. Carrots and pumpkin are sweet but then the strong taste of french garlic and cabbage makes this soup simply perfect.
