I’ve been planning these beautiful cakes for a week now, adding new ideas day by day. It seems that lately I find the night to be the moment when I’m most inspired and I often get out of bed just to write down an idea so I won’t forget in the morning. That is what happened with the muesli base and the coconut tuile. If you’d see the papers I’m taking notes on, it would scare you. They’re full of adnotations, changes, drawings, scribbling, but for some reason I find them to be beautiful and they make so much sense to me. I often keep the original papers too, even though I re-write the recipe on a special notebook I made for my favorite recipes or on my blog. It’s just feels wrong to throw them away, they are part of the process through I create cakes and keeping them means that I can always can go back and make additional changes if I want to.
In this recipe the flavourful sausage is simmered in a pesto chicken broth with carrots, potatoes and corn, so plenty of flavours going on. I have also added cheddar cheese to make this soup rich and velvety. Another cheese that goes well in this soup is mozzarella or provolone. To finish the soup, I added fresh basil for extra flavour. This potato and sausage pesto soup is one of those warming soups that is great for just about any night of the week. It's simple, and it's quick, and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already.
