Recipe by nitko

This is the simplest soup ever. I used to eat this soup during digestive problems as a diet soup. This is probably the soup prisoners used to eat, or soldiers, or just poor people. This is the recipe I use.

Forgot about this recipe. My mother always made it when a widower friend from her village came to visit. I'll have to try it soon. Kedi
