If you are a regular reader of these columns, you may recall a previous reference to this soup. I was describing a classic food interaction with my husband: "On the first round, I pureed the soup and added a little tarragon. His reaction? 'There's something weird in it.' The next week, I omitted the tarragon, but left the soup chunky to lower the glycemic index. Response: 'I'd like it better if it were completely pureed.' (My rejoinder: 'I'm going to puree ALL of your food from now on.')"
Here's how things went when I told him I was going to feature the soup this week. Question: "The pureed version?" Answer: "Half-pureed." Response: "I'd go with pureed if I were you." Last laugh: "You'd better watch what you say: Every word is going into my post". Not to discount his opinion altogether, I've made the tarragon optional in the recipe below; but it's a lovely option if you're after something just a little bit different.
