Soup with the Simons: White bean & carrot

By | September 14, 2012

Raise your hand if your Rosh Hashanah meals will include chicken soup.

Now raise your hand if your Rosh Hashanah meals will include soups that feature one of the simanim.

(If you’ll be having a soup that includes two or more simanim, you get extra points. Fish head soup, anyone?)

Although I’m billing this white bean & carrot soup as a great choice for Rosh Hashanah, it also works for any fall day.

It’s light and refreshing from the carrots’ natural sweetness, but it gets a dose of heartiness from the beans. In other words, it’s really good.

Another plus: The ingredient list is pretty basic, and that lets you put up a pot even at the last minute.

If you have a few minutes between now and the start of Rosh Hashanah on Sunday night, give this one a try. A vegetarian soup might be just the thing by the time you get to your third meal of the chag.

…Doesn’t it always come back to Yom Tov?

You do know that chicken soup generally has carrots and zucchini in it, right?

Okay, maybe I didn’t. That’s actually pretty funny.
