Friday: Cousa soup, special swine flu edition
Simple soup of Cousa squash, tofu and tomato.
We know we've been doing a lot of summer squash-tomato soup recently, but a warm soup sounded good to Giselle when she was sick, and those cute little Cousa squashes were begging to be used. Since we only had a little fresh tomato left, we actually flavored the broth of this soup by using tomato paste - not a bad method when you just want a tomato flavor to permeate your dish. We recommend buying tomato paste in tube form, which is how it's typically sold in Italian shops. Though you can buy it in little cans in every grocery store, it's hard to use a whole can at once, so the tubes make much more sense storage-wise.
