Yum yum yum yum. Looking at these pictures again makes me want to run back to the kitchen and make this soup all over again.
I know soup in summer sounds like madness but I swear it works here. Rich but not heavy, creamy but fiery, this is the perfect meal for when you’re exhausted and craving super easy comfort food that doesn’t require turning on the stove.
I adapted this recipe from I Breath I’m Hungry and put it on the meal plan while on a keto kick. By the time I got around to making it I was back on Carb Fest so served it over a scoop of rice. It’s naturally gluten-free and paleo but I promise it’s satisfying and delicious no matter what your dietary persuasion. This is probably heretical but I honestly think it wouldn’t miss much if you left out the shrimp for the vegetarians. Or swap another fish or chicken for the picky-pants in your life.
Give soup a chance this summer and let me know what you think.
