This soup is a bit heavy for summer, but it looked so good we couldn't resist sharing it.
Timmy and I had a great weekend out in Colorado, but it ended too soon. We came back with just enough vegetables to make zucchini surprise. I also added some of our own peppers to it as well and served it with basmati rice... the good kind. My brother was telling me that he's been able to buy wheat basmati which intrigues me. I'll have to look around for it.
I have to say that I love the smell of cooked mirepoix with freshly added garlic. Garlic makes everything smell and taste better in my opinion! I'm super excited to try this soup, I used to go to a restaurant in Orlando when I was younger that had the best beer and cheese soup I've ever come across. Since that time, I've been trying find the perfect blend of flavors to recreate it.
