soyo

This may not look the most appetizing, but it is an amazing meat broth-soup commonly eaten here in Paraguay. A pretty simple recipe, it results in a very flavourful soup that I really enjoyed every time I got it.

This recipe is taken from Comida Paraguaya by Josefina Velilla de Aquino. Translation by Chris.

SOYO

500 g minced meat
2 L cold water
2 tbsp rice
3 tbsp oil
1 medium onion
1 bell pepper
1 tomato
3 green onions
1 level tbsp flour
salt
oregano
parsley

1. Grind meat and rice in a mortar or a food processor several times, until it forms a paste. Put in a bowl and mix well. (You may also mix meat and water in the food processor.)

2. Heat the oil in a pan. Cook the onions a little, then add the tomato, pepper, and finely chopped green onion. Add the flour to this sauce, then the meat and rice in water. Stir until it comes to a boil.

3. Add salt, oregano, and parsley to taste. If you wish, you can put the whole soup through the blender again for a smoother dish.

Serves 8.

Often served with noodles in the soup.
