Soup Nights (Rizzoli 2016) includes over 100 recipes for fabulous sops and sides. There are soups for every palate: some are perfect for faithful vegetarians, others focus on fish (bouillabaisse and gumbo), and many highlight nutrient-rich beans and grains (barley, quinoa, lentils and beans of varying hues). You’ll also find hearty, richly flavored options, such as classic onion soup gratiné to counter weather’s chill, as well as cooler choices, like an icy cucumber Vichyssoise, for sweltering days.
Though we might wish to, one cannot live by soup alone. So, this book also includes recipes for fresh seasonal salads and inventive sandwiches—natural partners for soups—as well as for delectable desserts. Carefully crafted to pair with the soups in this collection, these side dishes will help round out your meal’s soup star. Soup Nights is available at book stores and online at Amazon
