Authentic German Semolina Soup Baden Style

The Semolina Soup Baden Style or “Badische Griessuppe” is a delicious and authentic soup specialty from Baden-Würtemberg, from the region Baden. If you cannot get semolina, you can use instead polenta. Durum semolina is made from wheat and binds the soup nicely and it is used in Germany for many soups, cakes and desserts as well. Polenta is from corn and could be used as well. Happy Cooking!
