Thank you to Alida from My Little Italian Kitchen for sharing this recipe.

This soup is simple, healthy and delicious! I love this kind of soup. No cream, so very healthy!

I was very surprised, when my 17 y. old daughter said :”Oh, mom, your soup is very good. Can I have more?” Because she never wants to eat any soup.

In the original recipe, Alida adds some shrimp that she cooked in a little olive oil until slightly golden. Then she puts the shrimp on top before serving with the pomegranate seeds. .

You have no time to cook and you are just 2. This soup is perfect for a simple dinner.

If you are 4, you can decide to serve it before the entree.

Anyway, it’s an excellent recipe for after the Holidays 😉
