the so called soupe au pistou recipe linked to here is nothing like a real soupe au pistou... I don't know the food network tv chef she copied the recipe from, but it's not authentic in any case. (bacon? tomato paste? peas?)i live in the south of france, and soupe au pistou is a delicious summer soup, made with summer vegetables from the "potager" (the kitchen garden). the 7 vegetables are:onionscarrotspotatoeswhite beans (fresh cranberry/borlotti beans are traditional, white haricots cocos work too)green beanszucchinipeeled, seeded tomatoes (added shortly before serving)some people add small pasta to it, but i prefer it without.it's also common to sprinkle your bowl of soup with fresh parmesan.heartily recommended when properly prepared. bon appétit!
