a delicious soup that can easily be adjusted to any season. This is the basic recipe,very good as it is, but I have to admit that I hardly ever make the soup twice in exactly the same way. If there are some carrots in my vegetable drawer or if I have some left over blue cheese, I would throw it in as well. Once I used the juices that were left on the bottom of a chicken Tajine next to the stock, the result was a nice and rich flavored soup. —Janneke Verheij

Can you let me know what you mean by "2 paprikas"? Is this a dried pepper? Or is it a whole form of the pepper that is ground for paprika the spice?

Dear Amanda, Thank you for your reply, I am translating my recipes in English and I see I was wrong to think paprika means the same in English as in Dutch. I mean Bell Pepper or capsicum, the kind you find in red, green, yellow and sometimes orange.
