Sometimes the most interesting food creations happen when you’re hungry and feeling adventurous. That’s where ketchup soup comes in: an unconventional recipe, strong on flavor, perfect for satisfying your cravings.

Over the years, ketchup soup has become a staple in some parts of Europe and the US, with a few regional differences in the recipe. It’s one of those memorable dishes that can take you right back to childhood when you taste it. But, we’re here to introduce you to a new and innovative version of the classic ketchup soup.
