“From the Food Network, Rachael says "a stoup is thicker than a soup and thinner than a stew". I must make all my soups as stoups, since it isn't any thicker than other soups I have made. That aside, this is a very tasty soup -- one that I will make often. I cut up all my veggies ahead of time and made the recipe as posted except I didn't use the black olive tapenade because my store doesn't carry it and I stirred the parsley into the stoup while it was simmering. I also let it simmer on the stove for 20-30 minutes because I wasn't ready to serve dinner yet and it was fine. It is excellent and definitely a keeper!”
