Putting Bread Into Soup on Shabbat

Putting Bread Into Soup on Shabbat
Day: Thursday
Date: August 21, 2014
Parshat: Re'eh
Yalkut Yosef: 318

It is permissible on Shabbat to dip bread in soup since the bread has already been fully cooked. For the same reason one may also pour soup over soup nuts or pour boiling hot water over coffee grinds. Since the soup nuts and the coffee grinds are both fully cooked, pouring the water over them has no effect of cooking. Likewise one may also our boiling water into instant soup or over noodles on Shabbat if the ingredients in the soup or noodles had been previously fully cooked and are edible before pouring the water. Sephardim may pour from a kli rishon directly onto these items and Ashkenazim may pour from a kli sheni only. If possible Sephardim should pour only from a kli sheni as well.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
