Nicaragua - People and places: Sopa de albondiga

Sopa de albondiga





 

  

Everybody was waiting for their bowl of soup last Saturday in Granada.  That huge boiling pot was home to a chicken dumpling soup, famous throughout Nicaragua.  Chocked full of local Nicaraguan vegetables like yucca, corn on the cob, tender corn on the cob, cabbage, yautia, condiments, chicken and the famous corn mash dumplings, it is one of my favorites.

Todo el mundo esperaba su taza de sopa el día sábado en Granada.  Aquel perol gigante estaba herviendo con sopa de albondiga, famosa en todo Nicaragua.  Repleta de verduras Nicaragüenses como yuca, elotes, chilotes, repollo, quequisque, condimentos, pollo y las famosas albondigas hechas de masa de maíz, es una de mis favoritas.
