Water soup v 2.1

I didn’t like the fact that the other recipe called for egg beaters. Call me a snob. So I found another aqua cotta recipe, this one, with no chicken broth, and no egg beater. I’ll cook this either tonight or tomorrow.

  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper or other small chili pepper, minced
  • 1 pound spinach, torn into big pieces, with thick stems discarded
  • 1 10-ounce can tomatoes, seeds squeezed out
  • 6 cups water
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs (for thickening)
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 6 eggs (for poaching)
    Undergarnish: 6 thick slices of coarse, dense bread, grilled or broiled
