Three Main Things in it Soup

Its Friday the 13th and anything could happen! The fear of the number 13 has been given the scientific name of Triskaidekaphobia. The fear of Friday the 13th is called Paraskevidekatriaphobia.

Anyway taking my lead from the Tri in Triskaidekaphobia I wondered if I could come with a soup that has three main ingredient’s that come in threes. I know its a very thin link here but as my son says “Whatever”. Well I did it! And to my amazement it works, it has a slightly sweet back note, but nonethe less a very tasty soup.
