I am always looking for more soup recipes as my kids love it, thank you! In order to make it more nutritious, I add a few slices of jamon iberico de bellota - aka iberico ham or pata negra- thinly cut. Because iberico has a strong and delicious flavor you do not need much, only 50 grams or 1.8 OZ for four people added once the soup is finished.
