Dating and chicken soup
Broth [Pot-au-feu], bouillion, and consomme entered here.Classic French cuisine generated many of the soups we know today.Cooking at 400 for 30" made my chicken come out rubbery - I'm not sure, but I believe cooking it at 350 for 45" may be a better bet. This dish is what made my boyfriend REALLY love me when we first started dating...Cooking at 400 for 30" made my chicken come out rubbery - I'm not sure, but I believe cooking it at 350 for 45" may be a better bet. This has got to be THE most simple dish I've tried so far.
Spelt flour was also removed from soups, as bread had been introduced into the Roman diet by the Greeks, and pulte became a meal largely for the poor.
New England chowder, Spanish gazpacho, Russian borscht, Italian minestrone, French onion, Chinese won ton and Campbell's tomato..all variations on the same theme.
Soups were easily digested and were prescribed for invalids since ancient times.
There is no set recipe for minestrone, since it is usually made out of whatever vegetables are in season.
It can be vegetarian, contain meat, or contain a meat-based broth (such as chicken stock).
