Green Tomatoes Soup
(Kavata Çorbası - Ottoman Kitchen)
500 g green tomatoes, washed, diced
1 small green Bell pepper, discard the seeds, diced
3 tbsp butter
~3 cups beef broth
1/2 cup milk + 2 tbsp flour
Pinch of nutmeg
Dill butter sauce:
2-3 tbsp dill, chopped

Saute the tomatoes and green pepper with butter for 4-5 minutes at medium heat. Add in the beef broth and cook until the vegetables are done at medium-low heat. Then strain it using a strainer. Pour the liquid back into the pot. Whisk the milk and flour in a bowl. Slowly pour into the soup. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir constantly and cook for about 10 more minutes at medium-low heat.
Heat up the butter in a small pan, when it starts to bubble, add in the dill and then turn the heat off. Drizzle all over the soup. Serve immediately.
