If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, there’s a place called Mission Heirloom in Berkeley that makes really delicious Paleo food. Can you believe the ONE time I actually drove all the way over there to try something out, they were closed. Yes, they closed early that day and I didn’t know. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to hate the internet, phones, etc.
This soup, as I like to call it, only has a few ingredients. The lamb bone broth that Mission Heirloom makes packs a lot of flavor. The real key to this soup is the simmer. Be mindful that when you simmer and reduce, you will loose some volume, but gain so much flavor.

Ready for simple? Put everything in a pot and boil on high heat. Since the lamb is cut very small, it cooks quickly. After several minutes of boiling, turn the heat down to low, and allow it to simmer, uncovered for at least 15 minutes. Keep an eye on it, and if the liquid gets too low, add a little water. You’ll notice I didn’t add any salt to the soup. The broth was pre-seasoned, and once reduced, it was almost too salty for me. Kid Three LOVED this soup by the way.
