  • At this stage, add half cup of water/stock (if anything available). Scrub the sides of the pan. Transfer to  blender/mixer and make into smooth paste
  • Add 2 cups of water, grounded paste back to the pan, salt, pepper, mixed Italian herbs and bring it to boil. Serve it hot. Traditionally its served with croutons (if available), don’t worry if not available. Still the soup will be soothing and comforting your taste buds an throat 🙂
