“At Boqueria, NYC and DC's favorite tapas bar, executive chef Marc Vidal creates a flavorful menu of authentic, Spanish tapas dishes. Every year on Christmas, Marc's family traditionally makes Escudella, a traditional Catalan soup made of various meats and vegetables in broth. On the following day, St. Stephen's Day, it is a Catalan tradition to use the leftover meat from the Escudella, and grind it up to make the stuffing for Canelones. Marc prepares the chicken canelones, or Canelones de la Iaia, using the leftover chicken and then creates a béchamel sauce to serve on top.”

I recently needed a soup for my daughter who wasn't feeling well. There was leftover ham in the fridge but my usual ham and potato soup included milk or cream, which is not the best thing for a touchy tummy, so this quick soup was born. The amount of the various ingredients is very flexible so don't worry if you use more or less of any one ingredient. The name comes from the traditional mix for Mirepoix which includes onions, celery, carrots and often ham or bacon.
