It’s not pretty, but it tastes quite delicious.
That’s what happened with a pot of minestrone soup I made last week. I typically make it the same way with more or less the same ingredients:
onion, carrot, celery, potato, zucchini or mushroom, maybe green beans, a rinsed tin of beans, some tomato, water; then simmer for a long period (2 hours+)
And it turns out delicious, but also, it looks appealing.
This time I used some shredded cabbage, a handful of chopped spinach, no beans… and a few other changes – enough that I made a different soup. Delicious but not really good looking.
Well, it looked pretty nice once I grated a heap of Romano cheese on top, actually.
