Having the time to chop the veggies and toast the spices and taste the soup change + develop as you go is a luxury that makes cooking dinner feel like a date with yourself, and there's nothing more wholesome than that. This soup, like any good soup, feels like a warm hug.
I had this for the first time at a friend’s house. She’s known for hosting spontaneous dinner parties of 8 to 10 people that are always perfect – fun, simple, welcoming and just the right amount of chaos. It’s the kind of house where you walk in and immediately feel welcome and at home.
Our group is filled with dietary restrictions (gluten free and dairy no go’s), vegetarians who are occasionally pescatarians, dedicated meat eaters and kids ranging in age from 3 months to 8 years old. This soup satisfies all kinds of diners. Right up until you plop yogurt on top, it’s dairy free. Kid’s will happily eat it and the veggies hidden within. It’s gluten free (check your bouillon and Chorizo) and filling. And, most importantly, it’s quick to make!
