Vegetable Noodle Soup
Nothing fancy, nothing new, just a beautifully basic vegetable soup that can accommodate whatever vegetables you have on hand. We've listed plenty of possibilities below, but the variations are infinite. Slideshow: Noodle Soups
Feel free to mix and match vegetable combinations according to what you like and what you have on hand. Other excellent soup vegetables include: fennel, celery root, cabbage, parsnips, turnips, peas, zucchini, squash, shredded greens, corn, lima beans, and bell peppers.
With this soup, try one of the lean and aromatic Cabernet Francs from the North Fork of Long Island, New York. These wines have less tannin than Cabernet Sauvignon and a distinct herbal, sometimes vegetal, flavor.
