I hate to waste anything, this soup is a good way to use any grape leaves that is left perhaps after cooking grape leaves dolma. Is has a sour taste, delicious, healthy, warming and easy to prepare.
Start with washing the grape leaves, cut off the stem and discard the stem and then cut into thin slices.
Then all you have to do is a bit of sauté. First the sliced leaves, then in sequence the onions, garlic cloves, tomato paste. All one after the other and all added to the same pot. Then goes the water, lemon’s juice and the spices. This soup doesn’t need salt as the leaves are already salty enough. You can leave out the meat bullion to keep it vegetarian.
