Great soup and it tasted great even before the ketchup was added. I used green onions in place of leeks as I was really making do. The dill makes this.

Delicious! The ketchup adds just the right note of subtle sweetness. We will be making this a lot. Thank you.

Fantastic soup! I made this exactly as posted, except I couldn't find no-yolk noodles. The combination of dill and paprika is unique, yet really packs a ton of flavor! I just loved the aroma of this soup while it was cooking. The ketchup was the final touch that really brought it all home! The only thing I might want to change is that I wish there was some meat in it to make this a full meal. Thanks for sharing this unexpected delight! Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #65.
