If you love soup, shrimp and vegetables you are in for a treat! This recipe is so delicious that I’m drooling a little bit just thinking about it. It was a hit with the entire family, and both kids requested second helpings.

Ironically, I came up with this recipe because I was very behind on grocery shopping and needed to work with whatever I had left in the fridge and cabinets. So I got creative with the foods I had on hand. If you aren’t a fan of shrimp you can substitute chicken or another protein of choice. I’m looking forward to making this recipe again. It was quick, healthy, simple to make and mouth watering-ly delicious.
