Kusksu is a delicious Maltese heart-warming soup, traditionally made in the Spring, when broad beans are in season. It is a dish that will transport you back to the Maltese islands, with its mixture of traditional tastes and flavours, especially if you add a Gozitan cheeselet (ġbejna) to your recipe.
