Shrimp'n'Hotroot Soup

— Chef's Note —

"Marvellous! Nobeast can make shrimp'n'hotroot like you do, sir!" - Tiria

This recipe is adapted from the one provided in The Redwall Cookbook to match the description provided by Friar Bibble in High Rhulain. Garlic is used in place of ransoms (broad-leaved garlic), and leeks in place of scallions. You can also substitute chili powder with any curry powder.

If you like mixing sweet and savory flavors as Garfo the otter does, you might try dipping nutbread spread with honey in the soup.
