Government-approved food to die for
But mulling over my Healthy Options, I thought of soupe corse (illustrated). This, oddly, is my favourite food in the world. It's a Corsican peasant soup (Corsican peasants don't count as processsed meat) which is different in every Corsican* restaurant - no two the same, but all just wonderful. It has humble ingredients - vegetables, perhaps a scrap of bacon, beans, sometimes pasta. I just love it. I looked up the recipe online (I have invented my own before, but I've forgotten how I did it), and they're all in French. My French is of the get-by variety. But I'm going to make it today.
* We love Corsica, and not just for the soup. I've lost count of the number of times we've stayed there.
