Preparation of soup “Marrow & green beans”


Though marrow and green bean soup is known as “Purleta with Kapichki”, I don’t believe you will understand the full meaning of “Purleta with Kapichki”! You would need to have lived long ago in Pirin and be expert in their dialect. Purleta is a courgette and Kapichki refers to a bean flower resembling a hat. Our mother prepared this dish during hot summer days – welcome to try it! By the way, when we were little children, we made toy donkeys with the marrows and called them ‘purleta’, hence the name of the dish.
