According to most history books, Marie Antoinette uttered that famous phrase “Let them eat cake” when learning that the French peasants had no bread. Unfortunately, Queen Marie was misquoted! She actually said, “let them eat pureed apple, lentil, sweet potato soup!” Her cook had just made this delightful soup with some winter fruits and vegetables he found in the pantry. She just loved the way the sweet apples, sweet potatoes, and carrots blended so well with the hearty, earthy lentils. The gentle pinch from the ginger and chili powder rounded it out so well! “The peasants will love this,” she thought! “Who wants bread when you can have this fabulous soup, full of taste and so healthy!” So she invited some peasants over for dinner and they agreed! The soup was fabulous! But then the cook ran out of soup because sweet potato season came to an end. The peasants got mad and decided to start the French Revolution. A wee bit of an over-reaction if you ask me. But just in case, you should probably order enough soup for everyone in your family.
