I had a damn good reason for making this soup.
I had a root canal yesterday. It sucked.
It really sucked ass. My endodontist is fantastic, so I can’t put it on him, but I think the gas just wasn’t doing enough for me. I’m not a baby, either. I can suck up some pain – I’ve delivered two big babies, had a hysterectomy, glass pulled out of my foot, etc. I don’t like pain, but I’ve definitely endured my share.
Since this wasn’t my first rodeo, I knew to be prepared so I made some soft food to accommodate my medication, because I definitely didn’t want to be throwing up. That would be like literal hell and nobody wants that.
What I didn’t expect was that this soup was going to be epic. It seriously is the best soup I’ve ever had in my entire life. Now, I now that sounds dramatic, and maybe it is, but it’s the truth. And if I’m being dramatic, give me a pass because I’m in pain here. These epic recipes usually seem to happen when I’m not really paying attention and not trying.
I’m so glad I took notes this time, because when I’m not trying I usually just don’t.
I made this with basmati rice, asparagus, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, whole cream and some other stuff thrown in that make it beautiful. I love basmati rice because it’s fragrant, slightly sweet (but not overly sweet) and goes good with just about everything.
I did include some Cajun seasoning and for whatever reason it complimented it perfectly. The liquid may seem excessive, but it’s not because the rice absorbs it. Feel free to add more if needed.
