Who is here for simple delicious recipes?? I know I am. My goal in life is to make cooking as less complicated and as flavorful as humanly possible. I have cooked some delicious things in my life but this right here is greatness. Minimal work for some epic deliciousness. If you cant already tell, I absolutely love this soup.
This is a great simple dish that can be made on any budget. It’s hearty and warm and can be enjoyed for lunch or supper. This recipe is very reminiscent of peppersoup but doesn’t require special spices. The ginger, scotch bonnet and garlic go a long way to clear out your sinuses, even when it doesn’t feel like there is anything to clear.
