This is a staple in any Jewish home and often served with perogen (see page 19). Mom would use all sorts of vegetables to make a lovely rich-flavoured broth, so add whatever you fancy. Great way to clear the fridge too.
This is a favourite winter soup for our family as it warms you up beautifully. Make it chunky or as smooth and velvety as baby food – whatever you prefer.
Adding beef short ribs makes this into a really meaty meal of a soup. The meat is cooked until it’s falling off the bone and soft and delicious.
The vivid colour of this soup makes it very enticing and it’s so easy to make. It keeps well in the fridge for several days or you can freeze it for up to two months. Perfect for a quick meal.
