Notes from Chef Michael

Options to Serve. This is one of my favourite soups for the simple reason that it is very versatile and you can change it up with the addition of a few ingredients. First step, I like to puree the soup with an immersion blender — one or two quick pulses should do the trick. The texture I am looking for is a combination of rustic farmhouse with just a little purée.

Option One: A tablespoon or two of yogurt and freshly chopped chives gives a refreshing, tangy taste to this home-style soup.

Option Two: Fften times I will add cheesy croutons, diced roasted chicken and even smoked salmon would be a perfect combination of ingredients for this versatile soup.
