Kusksu is a traditional Maltese soup typically made in Spring. It has three main components: a broth made from tomato paste, broad beans, and Kusksu which is a thick bead of wheat pasta. We finish the soup by adding a mozzarella ball in the centre of the bowl prior to serving. It melts slowly giving a fresh and nice texture to the soup.
