Soup is among the oldest dishes consumed by humans. In Poland it appeared around the 13th century, and—because it was relatively cheap and represented a decent meal—was quickly adopted by all classes of society. A boom in vegetable soup happened in the 16th century, when Queen Bona brought greens, which became popular all over the old continent. Soup even found a place in poems and books, like “The Life of the Honest Man” by Mikolaj Rej.
Of course these were primitive forms of soup, and nothing compared to the variety we have today. Still, they remain inexpensive and nutrient-rich, healthy meals, which are easy to prepare … and that’s why they remain beloved in Poland to this day. ☺
