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 puree.
Option one – a tablespoon or two of yogurt and freshly chopped chives gives a refreshing, tangy taste to this home-style soup.
Option two – often times I will add cheesy croutons, diced roasted chicken and even smoked salmon would be a perfect combination of ingredients for this versatile soup.
