Today’s recipe is for the soup made famous on Seinfeld.

You remember…”No Soup for YOU!”

On the popular episode, everyone is crazy for the soup of the so-called, “Soup Nazi.” People are lining up for half a block just to get a cup of his soup. Each time Jerry, George, Kramer or Elaine take a bite they almost faint with spasms of delight.

Like much else on the show, this was based on a real part of Jerry’s life in New York City.

There actually is a Soup Man and he runs a tiny soup restaurant in NYC that has customers lining up everyday for cups of soup, even in sub-zero winters.

The creator is named Al and he goes by the title “The Soup Man.”

“Soup for you!”
