A rich, healthy and calorie conscious soup
This is a filling soup with the tasty flavor of sweet shrimp. It is a staple in northern Germany, in the town of Hamburg it is cooked with the local tiny shrimp, a true delicacy. You absolutely have to try if you ever find yourself in that part of the world. I used the little cooked bay shrimp that you find here in California. The celeriac (celery root) and the other root vegetables add an earthy flavor. When I made this for my German girlfriend, my picky American husband loved it. This soup is hearty enough for an evening meal served with crusty bread and a salad. Or it would make a delicious first course for a fancy dinner. It has hardly any calories, but it is very satisfying. I cook soups like this when I need to lose some weight.
