Ropa Vieja Soup Recipe
The second best part from making Ropa Vieja is the broth that is created for the soup. The broth is so rich and flavorful that it would be a sin not to use it. Every single time I make Ropa Vieja nothing is wasted and with fall and winter right around the corner this soup is sure to become one of your favorite comfort foods.
An optional ingredient that I add to the soup is malanga (my husbands favorite). Malanga is a root vegetable that is similar to a potato. It can be found in most latin supermarkets.
As a side note, when my boys were little soup was made every couple of days with either chicken or beef. I would use a variety of different vegetables and then blend the soup to make baby food. I can share that later if anyone is interested.
