  • About

From the Roman Jewish tradition.


  • 2 medium turnips
  • 5 cups (1.2 liters) meat broth, preferably beef


Peel the turnips and slice very thinly. Put the slices in a bowl, cover with cold water, and soak for about 2 hours to eliminate the bitter taste.

Pour the broth into a pot and bring to a boil. Drain the turnips well and add them to the pot, then add the rice. Cook the soup over low heat for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the rice is just tender. Serve hot.
