Everyone in this city is fascinated with juicing (not the performance enhancing drugs), and we are frequently asked if we partake in such pleasures.  I  have a smoothie each morning for breakfast but I don’t think that would constitute me a juicer.  What we do in fact do though is make everything from scratch.  Be is hummus or salsa to pasta sauce or soup, we whip it without using extra sugars, oils or any manufactured additives and preservatives.  We eat whole foods, and make most of our meals in house so we don’t do anything to supplement our nutritional needs in terms of different diets and cleanses.  Tonight’s soup is one such example of this philosophy, which I shared with my lovely friend Madeline, as we caught up on the coming semester and our time over the holidays.

Spicy Coconut Shrimp Bisque

Shrimp Bisque

Jay and I are unanimous -this may just be our favorite soup I have cooked to date.  We are days away from heading home for the holidays so I was in a use what is left in the fridge mindset with this creation.  This thick, rich, hearty soup was the perfect addition to a blissfully wonderful day in our first New York snowfall.  This savory gem may seem a little more labour intensive than most of my others since it is more than just a chop, boil, serve type of dish. But that extra time spent sautéing the shrimp is really, really worth it; I promise.  Even so the entire soup requires maybe 15 minutes of hands on time, and the reward you reap is exceptional. From our home to yours.. enjoy 🙂
