Prepare the Broth

In a pot put the vegetables to boil (don’t cut them) in 2,5 litres of water, to make the broth. Boil for at least 30 minutes. Salt and Pepper to taste. 

When the broth is ready, strain it and use as you prefer.

The broth can be made with most vegetables, even some left-overs you have, or a good store-bought broth.

If you are not a vegetarian, you can also add chicken leftovers to the broth!

I have finally found this great recipe!

Finally! I had this incredibly simple yet AMAZING recipe in a trattoria near Rome a few years ago and remembered I loved it and remembered some of the basic ingredients, like the curdled egg, but I could not remember the name of this dish. THANK YOU!
