  • Add white wine and cook for 2-3 minutes until reduced by half;
  • Add hot and sweet smoked paprika and mix everything well;
  • Using a handheld shredder, grate both tomatoes and add to your pot;
  • Add broken potatoes*;
  • Add vegetable stock. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through;
  • Season with salt and pepper and check if more paprika is needed;

* When you break potatoes instead of cutting them, they will release more starch into the broth to thicken it up. In order to break potatoes use pairing knife, start cutting it and then break it before it is totally cut. Continue in the same fashion with the remaining potatoes.
