Makes: 1 large pie

Preparation Time: 40 minutes

Level: Easy

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 MEDIUM ONIONS, GRATED
  • 4 TABLESPOONS OF CORN OIL
  • 4 TEACUPS OF MILK
  • 2½ TEACUPS OF MEIA-CURA CHEESE, GRATED
  • 2 TEACUPS OF FLAKED CORN FLOUR
  • 4 EGGS
  • ¼ BUNCH OF GREEN ONIONS, CHOPPED
  • ¼ BUNCH OF PARSLEY, CHOPPED
  • 1 TABLESPOON OF BAKING POWDER
  • SALT TO TASTE

PREPARATION

Braise the grated onion in corn oil, until it wilts a bit. Cover with milk and cook over medium heat. Turn off when it begins to boil and set aside. Mix the meia-cura cheese, the corn flour, the beaten eggs and the previously boiled milk, stirring until you obtain a smooth dough. Season with salt and the chopped herbs and add the baking powder. Bake in a greased baking tray at 180°C for 30 minutes, or until the pie is firm and golden. 

IN DETAIL: This salty cake is another example of influences from neighbouring countries. As the name itself indicates, the recipe – which is called a “sopa” (soup), but is not a sopa – is a popular breakfast in Paraguay, a habit that spread out to the frontier cities in the Mid-West.
