I usually get the potato, mushrooms, kale and smoked gouda soup, which is a great combination of flavors. I tried to recreate his soup, to see if I could do it better, but as I was adding ingredients it took a different direction and I ended up with a mushroom, potato, and barley soup, which to be honest, turned out way better than I could have expected.
Yesterday, I took a trip to the Asian grocery store, which is always a two-hour event - deciding on which fresh tofu to buy, choosing the best noodle stand to grab lunch, gawking at all the exotic fruit.
Now lets talk about this soup and all of the delicious bits that is encompasses. I made this lemony, white bean, kale, and pasta soup for the first time over the Christmas holidays, after a trip to the grocery store, a handful of my favorite ingredients thrown into a basket. I had just received the book Jerusalem as a gift, and was busy bookmarking the dishes I was most eager to try.
