Soups are really not on my list of favourite foods. My husband and daughter, unlike me, love soup. When we eat out, they usually start dinner with a soup whereas the soup invariably ends up being my dinner. Soup fills me up so well, there’s never any space in my stomach for anything that follows.
When we are in the mood for a light dinner I tend to make heartier soups that would be a meal in themselves. This soup made it to our dinner table, one night last week, with home-made dinner rolls.
This soup is my version of a Portuguese soup that goes by this name. Soup, along with bread, is a very popular food in Portugal and their cuisine features quite a variety of soups. However, there is very little choice for a vegetarian, as most of their soups include meat. Even the soups made with vegetables would invariably have chorizo (pork sausage)
This soup is vegetarian version of the Sopa de Feijao Branca e Legumes.
