Roasted Poblano Pepper Soup
Another one of my favorite go-to soup recipes that I love having on hand throughout the week. Poblanos are generally pretty mild in heat and are full of flavor. They also are rich in fiber and vitamin A as well as a great source of iron and potassium. I love them roasted and served with barbacoa but also taste amazing blended into a savory soup.
I recently blogged about how I am really into making these base soups for my meal planning because they are incredibly easy to make (I break it down into just 5 simple steps!) but are also a great way to consume bone broth throughout the week. I love making a giant pot of these kinds of soup and just having them on hand because I know at the very leas when my schedule is super busy that I will always have a nourishing soup to eat. This particular soup is delicious as-is or is also great topped with a fried egg or chorizo.
