soup and honey suckle iiiAuthor note: This is a refreshing and filling soup. It is packed with protein and can easily be adjusted to be dairy free. If the soup needs to be served immediately and there is not time to chill, add a few pieces of crushed ice. Add a ¼ teaspoon of ground coriander if you would like a sweet note to the soup. If you desire to add more protein to the soup, it is delicious topped with a diced boiled egg or a side of spicy garlic shrimp (click here for recipe).
