This budget friendly meal is loaded with protein and utilizes many incredible green elements.
Some soups have the power of looking ‘light’ and being hearty at the same time. This soup is exactly that!
I recommend this soup when someone is trying to save their pennies, eat the rainbow and make it delicious. This creamy blend includes edamame, peas, roasted zucchini and poblano pepper. With fresh (green) elements like lime juice, spring onion and cilantro – the world of cooked and raw come together to create a symphony of flavor and texture.
Topped with croutons from my focaccia bloom to add extra oomph, this soup is wonderful!
