Be careful not to burn the bun/pastry, when they get a golden color put them into a bowl and serve with the soup. Remove the soup from the heat and strain it. Do not throw away the liquid!! Chop everything with a stick mixer again with the liquid. Return to the stove and stir while heating to obtain a creamy mixture. While still hot, pour the soup into a plate and serve it.
