    Chef Kate's Note:

    I know there are those who say they don't like cilantro or coriander or Chinese parsley. I am not one of those people and this soup is so delicious and comforting when served hot in cold weather, and soothing when served cold in hot weather. It's another Portuguese recipe adapted from Jean Anderson's Foods of Portugal. This is very easy to make but it requires a good 24 hours in the fridge, so plan accordingly.

      Outstanding soup. Very well seasoned. If you are fond of cilantro (as I am), you will love this dish. Thanks for posting it, Kate.
