Just like what I used to make delicious

The picture that accompanies this sopas recipe does not represent any Azorean or Portuguese sopas that I have eaten or cooked. The broth is a rich seasoned beef stockthat is poured over the day old slice French bread. The pix appears to be a thick Cald Verde.
