soupe Corse

hearty vegetable soup

soupe corse

‘Either eat your soup or jump out the window,’ say the Corsicans, who know what’s good for you.

A bit like minestrone, this classic starter (also known as suppa corsa) varies from chef to chef but nearly always includes red, pink or white beans, cabbage, potatoes, onions, ham bone or slices of figatellu for flavour, tomatoes and often noodles.
