When is a recipe not a recipe?

When I only pretend to follow it. Tonight, I tried to make Tuscan White Bean Soup with Escarole, except we don’t have any white beans, and I don’t even know what Escarole is.

So I used kidney beans and kale instead. I’m calling it Etruscan Kidney soup (for no particular reason).

I also put a nice twist on our typical seedy salad (in which I toast some pumpkin and sunflower seeds in olive oil, and add tamari, garlic, and lime juice) by tossing in some goat cheese. Yum!!

Update: turns out Etruscan soup is a real thing. That’s definitely going on the menu for next week!
