This shrimp bisque is not only gluten free but also keto and Paleo.

My friend Rach at Meatifed inspired me with her simple take on soups.

She said one of her favorite ways to make soup is just adding coconut milk and some Thai curry paste.. then just whatever veggies or meat she has on hand.

I never thought of approaching soup like that!

I attempted my first fancy soup, a bisque that turned into a dairy free one.

I researched it and realized all it is, is a base of soup vegetables (carrots, onions, celery) and your star of the show, in this case, shrimp, with cream (coconut cream) and stock added and then reduced.  

I felt so much better once I realized I had nothing to be intimidated by.  

I make chicken bone broth all the time so why would I be afraid to make soup?

How to Make Dairy Free Shrimp Bisque

I took the shrimp out and removed the shells but most recipes advise leaving the shells on for flavor. Then I added the shrimp back into the pot.

Add tomato paste and coconut cream. Puree with a hand blender until smooth.

Add 4 cups of chicken bone broth.

Simmer on medium heat stirring occasionally until desired thickness. Takes about 30 minutes.

Salt & pepper to taste.
