Flickr user Gato-Azul captured and created this colorful mise en place using fresh raw vegetables that pair together delightfully in terms of both aesthetic and taste. And while the assortment has an infinite amount of edible possibilities, as a collective it seems to be begging to be transformed into a satiating soup. With the addition of broth, hearty potatoes and carrots would provide a hefty base, augmented by the parsnip's nuttiness, and flavored with onion, leek and fresh sprigs of parsley. It's astounding how the most satisfying soups can be so simple to make.
