This classic vegetable soup is simple, however the Roquefort (sheep milk blue cheese from South of France) gives it so much more flavor!
- 3 medium potatoes
- 3 carrots
- 3 zucchinis
- 2 stalks of celery
- 1 leek
- 1 onion
- 2 bay leaves
- A pinch of salt
- A pinch of black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of herbes de Provence
- 1 liter and half of water
- 100g of Roquefort (Stilton or Gorgonzola)
- Peel the potatoes, the onion and the carrots.
- Wash and rinse the potatoes, the onion, the carrots and the zucchinis.
- Wash in water with a few drops of white vinegar the leek and the celery (to remove all the dirt), rinse properly.
- Cut the potatoes, the carrots and the zucchinis into small cubes.
- Slice the onion, the leek and the celery.
- In a large cooking pan add all the vegetables and the 2 bay leaves.
- Add the salt, the black pepper and the herbes de Provence.
- Pour 1 liter and half of water.
- Cook on a medium heat for 35 minutes.
- When it’s cooked, remove the bay leaves and mix the soup with a blender.
- Serve in a bowl add on the top a little of Roquefort and dust with herbes de Provence.
This soup is classic, warm and the Roquefort brings a creamy texture.
You can eat this soup without cheese too. When I cook I try to avoid the ready made stock and stock cube. If you prefer a thicker soup add less water.
