This soup is so filling you can serve it as a meal on its own. If you haven’t tried freekeh yet, this is the perfect introduction to its heartiness and versatility. Spicy shrimp tops a bowl of this soup that also includes black beans and peas. It’s not only super flavorful, but it’s interesting too.
If you can’t find freekeh for this soup, then use rice, barley or farro instead. If you don’t have romaine lettuce on hand, then add spinach or another leafy green in its place. To make this soup a real breeze to get on the table quickly, cook the freekeh in advance. It takes only about 25 minutes to make, but when you’re short on time, this really helps.
