Ah the old vegetables, oops, finally, the old vegetable ! We see them on the stalls of the markets, but we never know what to do with it.
Then to warm up our (long) evenings of fall here is a soup, all sweet, pointed out by the Sichuan pepper and the fig, violette de Solliès is my fig’s favorite, but it you have already noticed !!!
