Subject: RE: BS: Vegetable soup - any ideas?
Another generally good idea is to cut the veg up chunky and roast it in the oven (olive oil) before adding it to the stock and soffritto. I'm not a fan of charred edges, however. Very good with butternut squash and courgettes.

Never chuck away parmesan rinds. You can freeze them. Throw one or two into the simmering soup for up to half an hour. It adds depth and makes an amazing chewy tasty snack for the chef to go with your aperitif glass of white wine. I've been known to leave the rinds unnecessarily thick with this in mind.
