Step 2

Find a pan and pour in a good olive oil. Set on medium heat. Add all the vegetables. Pour over the chicken broth and turn up the heat. Add a little cayenne pepper to the pan. When it starts to boil, I turn down to medium heat. Let cook for 15 minutes.

Step 3

While the soup is boiling, I shake some pine nuts in a dry pan. Cook until the pine nuts have a slightly golden color and you can smell it.
