Paraguayan Soup is a dish from Paraguay as the name indicates.  It is also from the Northeast of Argentina and very similar to cornbread but salty with cheese. This sponge like cake is rich in calories and proteins.

Time to prepare: 50 minutes

Servings: 12


  • 500 grams of corn meal
  • 500 grams of Fontina type cheese
  • 500 grams of onions
  • 500 ml of milk
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 100 ml of vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste



First, preheat oven to 180 degrees C (moderate 345 F).  Spread butter in a large saucepan on medium fire. Add onions (chopped) and cook until golden brown and transparent.

Apart, in another bowl, add cheese cut into small 1 cm squares, milk and eggs. Start to mix ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Once the onions are cold, add to previous mixture.

Finally, grease a baking dish, preferably squared, where you will add the mixture. Then bake for 30 to 40 minutes until fully cooked. Texture should be sponge like. (Prick with a skewer. If it is clean and free of residue, it’s ready!) Once cold, cut into squares. This dish is served often with Paraguayan beef soup.
