“While there is a list of ingredients with this soup that is as thick s stew (hence the name stoup), you can substitute whatever you have in the fridge. In Czech, this kind of dish is called "co d?m dal" or "what the house gave" and its intent is to clean out your fridge of all those veggies that are about to go bad. This stoup, as with many soups and stews, is even better the next day. The more you make, the more lunches you get out of it!”
