I am one of those weird people who eat soup all year round. The only time I won’t slurp down a bowl is if it’s over 100 degrees outside and my air conditioning can’t cool down my home enough.
I am also one of those people who collect cookbooks and recipes. Pinterest has been both a godsend and a curse, because it just gives me more food for my fodder. Or however that phrase goes. I read cookbooks and recipes for fun.
My mom got me a subscription to Cuisine at Home magazine, and I love it. LOVE it. They have some of the most interesting soup recipes out there. One of the first ones that I tried is a tomato-chipotle soup. So smoky, so smooth. I took some liberties and modified it to my liking. I also added meat, for Mr. B. I can’t link to the original recipe, but if you really want it – contact me. 🙂
There are a few small modifications that you can do to this recipe to make it paleo or gluten-free. Switch out the butter for vegan butter, omit the flour and the garnishes. And the flavors will still be there so don’t be afraid. I know from experience.
