la soupe francaise dans le crock pot americain.

for some reason, i think of making soups as being very time-consuming, so i generally like to throw everything in the baby crock pot and let it do its thing. i usually throw in anything that looks good, but this time i decided to try an actual recipe. not that i really followed it, but it ended up pretty tasty anyway.

soupe au pistou les montilles - natural health magazine dec/jan 2008


  • didn't measure anything.
  • i used 1 leek, 1 carrot, handful of green beans, part of a potato, 1 zucchini, and basically everything else measured by what looked right.
  • i didn't saute the leeks and carrots first.
  • i dumped everything into the crock pot except for the pistou and let it go overnight.
  • instead of fresh basil, i used herbes de provence for the pistou. seemed appropriate, and i put herbes de provence in everything anyway.

in the future:

  • i would boil the macaroni separately rather than letting it cook in the soup overnight. it kind of disintegrated.
  • and i think i would chop the potato finer so that it will disintegrate.
