Roasted Brussel Sprouts
(recipe from VwaV)
Potato and Tomato Soup
(potato, onion, garlic, herbes de provence, salt, pepper, tomato, olive oil)
There's no mistaking what season it is, eh? ;)
The soup is a favorite, and pretty easy to make, 4 cups of water, about 3-4 cubed potatoes, 1 chopped onion, about 10 cloves of garlic, 1 tbs. salt and 1/2 tbs. of herbes de provence -- toss in a soup pot and bring to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are cooked through (about 15-20 minutes). Meanwhile, in a small saute pan, add 1 tbs. olive oil and 2 chopped medium tomatoes and a pinch of salt -- cook down the tomatoes until they're released their water and have started to thicken.
In a blender combine the potato mixture with the tomato mixture and puree (you may need to do this in two batches) -- check for salt and serve hot...
