Shk'dei Marak Three Ways
These are tiny soup croutons made from flour, oil, and salt, and they are yummy. Always the butt of 'have some soup with your soup almonds' or 'why do I bother making soup? You can't even taste it under all those croutons'.
Pictured three ways: out of hand, glommed onto a knife full of hummous (a most unorthodox presentation, result of a late night snack binge), and as nature intended, in my mother-in-law's vegetable soup.
Shk'dei: Almonds. Marak: Soup. Often called 'soup mandel' in English, from the Yiddish 'mandel', almond.
