This is just what happened to Skip recently, when we came across the list compiled by Paleo Grubs of 43 Paleo soup recipes from other bloggers. They all looked so yummy and when I asked my companion which ones he wanted me to make he said "all of them", so what's a girl to do? Start at the top and make them all. Therefore, I've decided to make 2 soups a week until I've completed the list. Care to join me on this journey? I'll be (hopefully) posting weekly with the recipes I'm trying and feedback on them. Follow along and maybe make some soups too!
Here is where you will find the complete list:
I want to make sure I give credit to not only Paleo Grubs for compiling the list, but also to each recipe creator every week when I share my results at trying their soups!
Persian Roasted Butternut Squash Soup from Cinnamon Eats
This soup sounded so yummy from the start. I had never used dried rose petals before and was really intrigued by the idea. I had no idea if I'd be able to find them, after a few unsuccessful searches, it dawned on me that I forgot the perfect shop to find them! The Savory Spice Shop in Princeton and sure enough, I entered the store and asked the friendly employee who greeted us and he was able to locate them in the store in seconds (this was a short visit to one of my favorite stores, but it also gave my companion and I an excuse to visit our other favorite shop in Princeton, Cool Vines.)

We've been in the habit of eating soup for breakfast recently (it really warms you up on cold mornings). So, I re-heated the soup in the am and added a garnish of more ground rose petals to serve. The verdict: a very yummy, warming and hearty soup.
Pizza Soup from Paleo Girl's Kitchen
|Blending the tomatoes|
I don't think those small changes affected the feel or taste of the soup. As the delicious tomato base was simmering away and the sausage was crisping up in the cast iron pan, I thought- "wow! it smells just like pizza in here!".
I served this for a weeknight dinner, topped with crispy pepperoni (my companion's favorite part) and sliced black olives. Verdict- this was a very flavorful soup which was full of not only lots of protein, but also veggies (tomato, red bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms).
I hope you enjoy this first "installment" of Skip's "Soup Project". Wish me luck with next week's soups and with keeping up on sharing the soups on the blog weekly! :)
