Everyone is hungry, we forgot to shop, and of course the fridge is almost bare. This awesome accidental soup—it’s thick, more like stew, and full-flavored—surprised even the cook when it was ready. From the fridge came 4 carrots, 3 sausages, 2 potatoes, 1 carton of chicken broth, some leftover marinara sauce and a takeout box of rice. With a little oil, garlic, and dried herbs, we were enjoying a fantastic supper 30 minutes later. The best thing about this concept is it can be made with pretty much any veggies and protein you have around. These particular ingredients, though, evoked southern France's legendary Provencal region, and so we chose oregano, basil, thyme and garlic, along with fennel if you have it, for a consistent flavor profile.
