Lately with French Fridays with Dorie, I’ve been skipping reading Dorie’s mini-intros before the recipe and instead going straight for the recipe. This means that I miss out on the recipe’s backstory or some related humerous anecdote. Subsequently so, I have no idea who “Christine” is other than she’s the namesake of this week’s assignmnet.
Three types of soup were a lot ot make for one post, but luckily, my sister (Codename: Gamer Psychologist) was in town from Hawaii over Christmas to help with the eating! Still, I only made half versions of each batch for the two of us. As for garnishes, I used cayenne on the red bell pepper soup, curry on the asparagus soup, and cardamom on the broccoli soup. Gamer Psychologist really liked the broccoli and asparagus soups, but left me the red bell pepper soup because she stated “bell peppers are gross.”
Christine’s simple party soups were made for French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.
