Is it? This is a long running 'discussion' I've been having with my girlfriend.
The basic proprieties of soup is that it is one or more ingredients prepared and served in a liquid.
So by this understanding, its a soup. But she's maintaining that its so categorically different, that even though it matches on the surface, fundamentally they are different enough that the similarities don't matter.
I guess this may end up being, is the tomato a fruit or a vegetable? Yes its a fruit, but its only really USED as a vegetable so who really cares. But you know what they say, being technically correct is the best kind of correct.
