I’m sure you were as devastated as I was this week when reading the news. All I wanted to know was why? Why, why, why, Al and Tipper Gore? Why? So I did a little investigating – turns out it was over this soup. They both claimed to have come up with the recipe. Al said, “I love roasted cauliflower. It tastes almost nutty – like toasted almonds. And you know how I love almonds – not in moderation. I like them a lot.” Tipper replied with, “I was the one to find a farmer with parsnips in June. Parsnips have a natural sweetness that I absolutely love. I knew parsnips and roasted cauliflower would blend together perfectly.” While they make great points about the soup, neither one mentioned the ingredient that brings it all together – dill. Cooling, mellow, dill. Soupermom came up with that one. But really, if an argument over soup can bring down a marriage, well maybe a separation isn’t such a bad idea. And clearly this is one heck of a good soup.
