Pistou Soup

Pistou soup is a traditional French recipe from the Southern  region called Provence. This vegetable soup is at the same time healthy  and comforting, which in my opinion, makes it the perfect soup.

What is Pistou?

Pistou (pronounced peestoo) is the French version of the famous Italian  sauce called Pesto. Pistou and pesto are two pretty similar sauces (well  Provence and Italy are very close). The French traditional pistou  differs slightly from the Italian pesto: it has no pine nuts and no  parmesan (which is an italian cheese).

How to Make Pistou

1. Peel and dice the onion and make it sweat on medium heat in the olive oil in a Dutch oven. 2. In  the meantime, peel and slice the carrots. Wash the leek, celery stalks  and zucchini carefully. Cut all the vegetables into bite size. Transfer  them to the French oven along with the thyme, bay leaf and pinch of  salt. Pour the water (or broth) on the whole thing. Cover the French  oven. 3. Let it cook for about 30 minutes. 4. Add  the optional red beans and noodles. Let the noodles cook according to  instructions written on the package, probably around 5 to 10 minutes
