Final Notes for the Hungarian Homemade Tomato Soup Recipe with Semolina Dumplings

➡️ In some circles, there is a myth that Hungarians don’t like soups and eat goulash and paprikash all the time. Nothing more false! Of course, goulash and paprikash are widely consumed in Hungary, but the same thing happens with soups because Hungarians are big lovers of soups, with or without meat.

➡️ One of the most famous and consumed soups in Hungary is tomato soup with semolina dumplings. It can be cooked from fresh tomatoes, canned tomatoes, or tomato broth. On this page I am sharing an easy recipe for tomato soup with dumplings that have the advantage, besides being very tasty, that it’s ready very quickly and does not require many ingredients.

➡️ The Hungarian name for this soup is “paradicsom leves galuskaval” and has a pretty basic flavoring but so have many other tasty foods, not just this one. As already mentioned, this recipe can be cooked with basic ingredients that can be found in everyone’s pantry: an onion, tomato broth, a couple of eggs, and a little semolina.

➡️ Regarding the aromatic plants I use for this recipe, they are a bit unusual for Hungarian gastronomy and especially lovage. Celery leaves are pretty often used to add flavor to soups, while lovage is still used in some parts of Hungary and other countries where live large Hungarian communities such as Transylvania.

➡️ Both celery and lovage have a strong aroma that perfectly matches the taste of the tomato. However, if you do not like these flavors, you can replace them with other herbs such as basil, which is often used in Italy to prepare tomato soup.

➡️ As you can see in the video, cooking this easy tomato soup is very simple, so there aren’t many secrets to share about it to get the best results. I will just point out that the preparation of dumplings requires boiling them in a large amount of water. It is also VERY important not to mix them while they are boiling because we risk breaking them into small pieces!

➡️ If you have no experience in making semolina dumplings and you wonder how you know they are ready, the answer is that you just have to steam them, under the lid, and wait for rising on their own to the water surface – this is an indication that they are soft and ready for serving!
