Sauter means “to jump” in French. Scientific research shows that deaden matter can not jump. In order “to jump”, apparently one has to be – alive.
Well, my attempt this week to make an Indian style dish ended up in a funk of different flavors that didnâ€™t exactly please the palette. So after having a somewhat unpleasant lunch and getting inspired by an episode of Iron Chef, I decided to take a new direction and make some thing with a little Asian flavor. Iâ€™ve always enjoyed simple, stir-fry dishes, because they really bring out the flavor of the vegetables, instead of masking them with all sorts of spices and sauces. Thatâ€™s exactly the flavor I was going for with this dish, which has the added benefit of being ridiculously simple to make. For anyone who doesnâ€™t have an hour to prepare dinner, Iâ€™m sure this will be one of your new favorites.
This is a very filling, comforting soup and would be a lovely appetizer for Thanksgiving. It is also very quick and easy! I have been making so many soups lately because cold weather is approaching and this is definitely one of my favourites.
