Jake’s Shrimp Cream Soup

Chef Jake's Shrimp Cream Soup!

So around 2pm this afternoon Jake and I finally got hungry. We were at he and Mike’s apartment and so we went to the fridge to see what we could possibly make. What we found was a fridge of veggies that were looking like they really really needed to be used. So we decided to use up all those rough lookin’ veggies and make a shrimp cream soup with a bunch of vegetables. I also wanted to put an couple ears of corn into this soup, but Jake didn’t want to bother with boiling the corn so we didn’t do it (silly boys). It ended up being super SUPER delicious. Try it when you have your own fridge full of potentially endangered veggies!

Jake’s Shrimp Cream Soup

½ medium white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chives
2 cups frozen small shrimp
3 carrots, chopped
1 zucchini, cut lengthwise into quarters and sliced in half inch slices
2 medium heads broccoli
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ginger powder
4 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoon butter
drizzle of olive oil
2 cups veggie stock
1 ½ cups milk
3 green onions, chopped, to garnish

1. Over medium-high heat, sauté onion, garlic and chives in a drizzle of olive oil till tender.
2. Add in shrimp (still frozen). Cook 7 minutes.
3. Add in carrots, salt, pepper, ginger, chili powder. Cook till carrots are becoming softer.
4. Add in zucchini. Cook 5 minutes.
5. Add in butter. Let the butter melt and cook for 2 minutes.
6. Add in flour and stir frequently to create a roux.
7. Add in veggie stock. Decrease heat to medium-low for 10 minutes.
8. Add in broccoli. Stir 2 minutes.
9. Add in milk. Cook two minutes, stirring to mix.
10. Top with green onions and serve.

Jake is HUNGRY!

**All spice measurements are guesses. Chef Jake and Chef Erin recommend you taste frequently and alter the measurements to your own preference.**

Another possible suggestion:
Add in shredded cheese along with the milk to make this a cheesy soup.

Happy eating everyone!
