Soup
4–5 medium carrots, diced into 1-inch cubes
4–5 medium zucchini, diced into 1-inch cubes
3–4 onions, diced into 1/2-inch chunks
1 cup white wine
1 1/2 quarts chicken stock or broth
2 tablespoons oregano
2 tablespoons rosemary
4 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat the oven to 450. Combine half of the olive oil with the salt and pepper and toss the diced zucchini and carrots in the mixture. Place the vegetables on a sheet pan and roast in the oven until brown.

Add the remaining olive oil and diced onion to a 1–2 gallon soup pot. Cook until golden brown, then add the white wine and cook until 3/4 of the liquid evaporates. Add the vegetables, herbs and chicken stock to the pot and simmer for 30–40 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.

Makes about 6 cups of soup.
