Corned Beef & Veggie Soup (Brodu tal-Corned Beef)

It’s Maltese Brodu time! A popular, favorite Maltese soup. This soup has a lot of variations & different takes to it. It is prepared on cold days, for when someone’s feeling under the weather or simply because it’s such a great comfort food in Maltese homes. Sharing this kind of recipe with you all simply makes my heart swell! It’s like giving you a look at the our Maltese homes & sharing a bit of our cuisine. I’d really recommend you give it a try especially if you’re a soup lover. In my case, sometimes I prepare this soup just to envelope my loved ones with something warm, hearty & bring a smile to their faces. I know it might look like it’s just a simple soup but it brings that much memories & love in our household. You start at a young age getting familiar with this type of soup & grow up to look forward to it as soon as you arrive home after a long day. For another version of Brodu, check out Chicken Soup (Brodu ta’ Tiġieġ).
