Recipes : Soups

This soup is famous all over Russia even though its origin is Georgian. The consistency of the soup resembles a thick stew and should be spicy and acidic, with most of the acid coming from tomato paste and plums. A special component of this dish is the liberal use of walnuts, which act much like dairy to round out the acid flavor of the stew and create a richer and silkier texture.
