Readers of this blog know there is no need for us to profess our #SoupLove. We love soup! There are no less than 17 soups – and this Paella Soup makes 18 soups in our our Recipe Index under Soups and Salads. So it wasn’t a stretch to come up with another one for this month’s Love Bloghop theme. These frigid days, I could in fact pick any given Tuesday, or Wednesday, or yesterday’s lunchtime soup recipe… as it’s not unusual for the kids and I to have a simple tomato or egg drop soup at lunch and then I’ll make a big hearty pot for the family at dinner.
This Paella Soup is a result of my craving for Spanish food (I’m not sure why, except it sounds sunny there!) and a desire to master the delicious seasoning smoked paprika in a dish. (I’m always adding too much or too little.) But I got it just right this time! Since this is a quick version of paella, I used instant brown rice (a nutrient-rich whole grain) and the smoked paprika stood in for the chorizo – which eliminated an extra sauteing step.
