Day 3 #iWriteDaily
A friend who loves YouTube sent me a video of Gina Petitti, “The Italian Grandmother,” cooking lentil soup. Gina is charming, and reminded me of my Ukrainian Baba, so I had to follow along and try her recipe.
Yum! It’s pretty similar in ingredients I usually add myself; but the way she sautés the vegetables separately then adds water, making a sort of stock before combining with the cooked lentils, was interesting.
As Gina says, “Today is a soup day,” with the temps dropping into the single digits again. Her recipe was the perfect way to keep warm.
