Tomato Soup, Romanian - meat, pareve

Posted by : Lara Lewin

At last, a quick soup! Romania is one of the few countries
with indigenous Sephardic and Askenazic communities, so
there is a strong mutual influence in the cooking.

Use meat broth instead of water if you are making this a meat meal.
A handful of herbs such as basil or oregano can be added, though this is
not traditional.

3/4 water
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 pounds tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teasoon paprika

Place water in a soup pot, add the rice and salt.
Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat, cover and
cook for 10 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and sugar to the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes more, or
until rice is soft.

Add paprika and season to taste, adding more sugar if
necessary.
