Mallow Soup Recipe

Quick and easy Mallow soup that doesn’t require many ingredients, nor a precise recipe. While this extremely healthy green is in season, try to make this delicious soup, or even a simple fresh salad. I have a tutorial on my YouTube channel on the salad as well.

In many regions of Armenia, this soup is made with different ariations. I’ll post a quick recipe for my grandmother’s Mallow soup . I can guarantee you’ll love it. If you decide to add a few extra herbs or spices, feel free to do so.

For me this Mallow soup is a light and satisfying comfort meal, or as I call it : guilt free comfort food. The soup consists of a few ingredients: Mallow, onions, potatoes and water or broth. Of course salt and pepper are a must. And forgot to mention another ingredient: one beaten egg, which is usually added after the soup is cooked and still hot. I didn’t add it to mine, but I can assure it adds a lot of thickness and really good taste to the soup. And lastly , we serve this Mallow soup with garlic yogurt. As simple as that.
