Guests can sip this festive, zesty soup from small cups or glasses. Notes: Pimentón de La Vera is a Spanish paprika that adds a smoky, sweet intensity, but Hungarian or regular paprika work too. Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes.

This is NOT a 'healthy' recipe. This is the way my mother, a real Greek, makes it... although the bouillon is a recent addition. Restaurants often just use the egg whites; my mother uses whole eggs.

This is a wonderfully healthy soup! It is a good healthy hearty soup that holds up well for the next day. A nice blend of rich flavors and yet so simple to make.

Suggestions for changes and additions from are: Double the tomatoes. It is also good with a spicy sausage, like turkey Andouille. Add more garlic and celery. Instead of Swiss chard, use collard greens. Add chipotle chili powder and/or a bit of liquid smoke and some cayenne to taste. It's wonderfully deep in flavor. Plus, a touch of sea salt when serving really brings out the flavors. Add a spicy Mexican tomato sauce call Chili el Pato from the Mexican food section of the grocery store for a little zing. Try sautéing the onions in some red pepper flakes for a little more depth of flavor.
