Fragrant basil pesto adds a taste of summer to this healthier version of a classic French soup. Aromatic vegetables add flavour and plenty of vitamins while keeping the fat in check. What a wonderful way to eat your vegetables!
For vegetarian vegetable soup, substitute another 450 ml vegetable stock for the chicken stock. You can also vary the vegetables. Always start with sautéed onion, carrot, celery and garlic. In spring, add a handful of fresh green peas during the last 10 minutes. During summer, team the tomatoes with corn and green beans.
