Kitchen Knife/ Minestrone soup
This is the first recipe of the Top Ten Basic Kitchen Utensils. The next 10 entries will feature each utensil in the order that weve established as an essential. Number 1 is the kitchen knife.
We chose to make minestrone soup, because it has lots of small diced vegetables in its recipe which is a great way to highlight the necessity of a good blade. We have also included a visual reference when you hear different sizes of diced vegetables. A good rule for soup is to cut the product to pieces that fit on to a spoon. If you want lots of different flavors use small dice.
