This week on French Fridays with Dorie the rest of the Doristas are making Arman's Caviar in Aspic (page 29). This recipe was not going to fly in my house so I decided to do a make-up. I handed my husband the cookbook and said pick something.
He picked vegetable barley soup with the taste of little India (page 89). I love soup, vegetables and Indian food so I thought it was a great pick. The base of this soup is onion, carrots, parsnips, garlic, fresh ginger and pearl barley. It is spiced with Garam masala and Turmeric. I used chicken broth for the liquid. It could not have been easier to make and tasted great. I made a note that this soup would be good when you have a cold with the ginger, garlic and chicken broth. I made a full recipe so we are looking forward to more soup and plan to make it again.
These recipes are part of an international cooking group working our way through Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.
