No meat, no gluten, no dairy, LOTS of flavor!
by Ari Weinzweig
This soup is one of the little-known secrets of the Roadhouse menu. While it’s true that fried chicken, pulled pork, fresh fish, and mac and cheese get much of the attention, there are a host of other great tasting meals that are really just as special. This soup is one of them!
How good is it? I asked for a cup of it just to taste for my regular quality check and I ended up eating the whole bowl even though I wasn’t hungry. I couldn’t stop! Its depth of the flavor comes from a slow-cooked sweet potato and vegetable stock, and we finish it off with fresh corn kernels, fire-roasted New Mexico green chiles, roasted red peppers, cilantro, cumin, cayenne and a garnish of avocado salad and chopped corn tortilla chips. Many guests love that it has no dairy, wheat or meat. Haley Mills, long time Roadhouse server told me that the Southwest Vegetable Soup is her “favorite food in the restaurant.” Come on by and have a bowl—along with a salad (arugula, goat cheese and roasted beets?) and a glass of wine.
