Southern Style Shrimp, Beans, and Veggies Soup

Updated: Dec 7, 2021

Do you like shrimp? Do you like gumbo but don't always have the time or energy for the long prep and cooking process? This soup is a perfect alternative to gumbo when you want a mildly spicy soup with shrimp and a good amount of veggies that is less time consuming than making gumbo. I personally love the amount of vegetables in this soup and with double the protein. If you're looking for a good soup recipe with shrimp to try, I highly recommend this recipe for your family and friends!
