After being used to having a soup to start a meal when we lived in another country we are always looking for good recipes for soup. Both my husband and myself prepare our food and love to entertain. We have prepared this recipe both with and without the shrimp - either way this is a really great recipe. The soup has a beautiful color and makes a wonderful start to a special meal. We find we like using this soup with more simple fare and it dresses up the entire meal. The only change we make in the recipe is subsituting beef broth for chicken broth because of my severe poultry allergy.
