Pota Brata (Irish Flag Soup)
'Brata' is Irish for flag and 'pota' is pot. This winter warming vegetable soup is called flag soup because when you cut the vegetables up it makes the colors of the Irish flag. The French call it 'mirepoix,' the Italians 'soffrito.' Either way, it makes a lovely soup for those chilly winter days. Serve with crusty bread rolls.
