This is an ancient Venetian
recipe that includes Suppli: Deep Fried Rice and Cheese Balls
but can be served instead poured over some stale crusty Italian bread and some cheese.
What You Will Need
1 ½ quarts vegetable stock
1 large beet, boiled, peeled, cut into matchsticks
2 carrots cut into matchsticks
1 large leek, cut into matchsticks
¼ pound celeriac (celery root) peeled and cut into matchsticks
(salt and pepper are not traditionally used but feel free to)
Simplicity itself. Bring the stock to a boil, add the vegetables and simmer for ten minutes. I prefer to roast the vegetables at a high heat for ten minutes first and then add them to the stock.
If you are using the rice balls, place them in a soup plate and ladle the soup over them. If using bread, same thing but it’s bread, not rice balls.
