Here we feature a popular Polish soup recipe usually made during Easter, called Zurek, although it is enjoyed year round. What makes zurek (pronounced "zhurek") so exotic is that zakwas is used for the soup base. Zakwas is made from fermenting rye flour and water. In fact, the name “zurek” traditionally refers to the soup made with a sour rye starter. This is an easy recipe, but the rye starter takes a 3-4 days to make, so if serving for Easter, give yourself a week to plan it out.
