Pour une surprise, c’etait une surprise…
I had never made this soup before trying it out for Tropical Foodies and since my soups always tend to be just average, I was a little nervous. It was remarkably simple to make and after I was done, all that was left was the photography session. I couldn’t take a photo as soon as I served the soup in a bowl as the shots came out blurry because of the steam, so I decided to try some while I was waiting. What a pleasant surprise! I would have finished the whole thing had a phone call not interrupted me. It was that good! And amazingly simple to make!
Whether you are in the mood for cozying up on a cold night, or you want a quick yet satisfying option for a meal, this Brazilian soup is an excellent choice. The ingredients are readily available in most pantries, the soup itself is adaptable for those who have special dietary need and above all, it is delicious. Also, if you are not sold already, it takes less than 20 minutes to make.
Here is the recipe adapted from the following book: Brazilian Cookery by Margarette De Andrade
