  1. Cut zucchini in half, then make a cut lengthwise on both sides about 1/4-inch deep. Cut into small noodles using a spiralizer.
  2. Combine tomatoes, broth, chili powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, and black pepper in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring soup to a simmer, reduce heat, and cook for 15 minutes.
  3. Add shrimp and desired amount of zucchini. Simmer until shrimp is pink, 3 to 5 minutes. Ladle into soup bowls.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use chicken, beef, or pork in place of the shrimp. For a vegetarian version use tofu in place of the shrimp and vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth.
