I officially have a new favourite winter soup. While I am still and always will be a fan of the minestrone, this combination of sweet and spicy turkey sausage, succulent shrimp, and a savoury and flavourful tomato broth really can’t be beat.
What makes this soup even more special is the prep time…10 minutes! Did you hear me? Just 10 minutes to get this soup on the stove and you will have a stand-out bowl of comfort in no time flat! Once you get the soup simmering, it will give you time to set the table, toast some bread, and well, just relax after a long day.
The secret ingredient to this fantastic recipe? Fennel. If you only know fennel as that crunchy black licorice-like vegetable, then just wait until you taste it sauteed until sweet and caramelized. All it needs is a slice off the top and bottom, a quick dice, and its ready to go in the pot. Mixed with all the other ingredients, it is a thing of magic really.
This soup freezes wonderfully, so you can store it in your freezer and enjoy bowls and bowls all winter long! Perfect on it’s own with some crusty bread…you really don’t need anything else!
A big batch soup that’s warm, filling, and just perfect for a cold and snowy day. What more could you ask for?
