Soups are one of the oldest types of foods, with origins dating back to 6000 B.C. The word is derived from the French word “soupe,” which is basically a direct translation of soup or broth. It is believed that the first commercially served soup originated in France in the 16th century; hence, the attribution of the name to the country.

What makes a soup exciting is that it can consist of anything you like. That being said, throwing a bunch of ingredients into a pot, turning up the heat and calling it a day won’t make your creation a work of culinary art. Soup requires careful preparation and calculation of ingredients to create a delicious result.

In this regard, this ketogenic recipe by Pete Evans truly excels. The base stock used is organic chicken broth, and is further enhanced by wild-caught trout, vegetables such as broccoli, garlic and onion, plus healthy servings of lemon and rosemary to add a wonderful aroma.
