Step 7: Serve

Serve immediately!  It's an excellent simple one-pot dinner, and great when paired with a simple green salad, with fresh fruit for dessert.

You want to make sure everyone is eating the soup as soon as possible after you've declared it properly seasoned, as these veggies aren't getting any fresher.  There's a tangy, vibrant taste to just-mixed-in fresh herbs that isn't the same after a longer simmer.

That said, this also makes excellent leftovers.  It stores and microwaves well, and the flavors will mingle in interesting ways after a night in the fridge.  You may want to reserve some additional fresh herbs to sprinkle over the top, or maybe squeeze a slice of lemon if you prefer that super-fresh taste, but otherwise it's only going to get better with time.
