Spring has truly sprung, as evidenced by these beautiful blossoms on the tree in our garden. However, the weather is still quite chilly, even on this first day of Spring, so today I made some soup.
The name of this soup is Kosksu. You might notice that the name is similar to "couscous", which is probably because the traditional pasta shape used in this soup looks like giant couscous. It's a Maltese soup, so to me, this reminds me of home, and Spring, when broad beans (a central ingredient in this soup) are in season in Malta. Here in the UK, I've had to substitute some of the ingredients as I can't find all of them. Nonetheless, the finished product is often very similar to the original that my mum used to make, and still makes, every Spring.
