I got to the end of the large dish of roasted vegetables (above) and they were looking pretty dreary. They needed a new identity.

I chopped the vegetables coarsely, put them in a pot with lots of chicken stock and a can of white beans, and brought it to a boil. It didn't need a bit more cooking. In the bowls, I sprinkled the soup with crushed red pepper and parsley. The miracle of reinvention.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
