This is a recipe for making soup. This is part of my Holiday reading challenge and this recipe is inspired by the book Making Bombs For Hitler . written by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch. It is about a girl called Lida who gets captured by the Nazi's and she is Ukrainian so she only gets served disgusting turnip soup were the rest for example the polish get served delicious meat and vegetable soup.


  1. Hi Zeba, that picture of meat and vegetable soups looks tasty and healthy. I wonder if the book you read is based on a true story?

  2. Dear Zeba, delighted that my novel inspired your recipe. And Aminiasi, the book is indeed based on true events.

  4. Hi Zeba, The picture of the soup looks very scrumptious, I will be sure to make that one day. The book Making Bombs For Hitler sound very interesting and I will be sure to read that in the holidays.

  5. Hi Zeba,
    That soup sure does look delicious. I like how you added the exact measurement of the ingredients so people will know how much of everything you need to add in order to make the soup.

  6. Hi Zeba,

    That soup really does look delicious. It is making me hungry just looking at it! I hope that you are able to make yourself some of this soup over the holiday period. I always enjoyed it when we had a little break from school and my sister and I could spend time learning new things (like how to make soup!)

    Hope that you're having a great break!

    Cheers, Rachel
