Top 10 Soups To Try Instead of Shark Fin Soup

by: Rachel Goldberg

Soup: it's arguably the most important food group. For millennia, it's brought together humans in just about every culture of the world. It's hard to believe there could be a downside to soup, but for our finned friends, soup can be deadly. Around 100 million sharks are killed every year for their fins, leaving many species in danger of extinction.

There's an easy solution, though: take shark fin soup off the menu. We hear it doesn't even taste that good anyways. Here are some delicious alternatives.

10. Clam Chowder

If you're craving something that comes from the sea, we suggest the famous New England clam chowder. It's creamy, filling, and best of all, no endangered species were harmed to make it.

9. French Onion Soup

Would you like some soup with that cheese?

8. Gazpacho


"But it's summertime," you say. "It's too hot for soup." WRONG! This chilled soup is the perfect refreshing summer dish. And it's deceptively easy- grab some tomato juice, some fresh veggies, blend 'em together, chill and serve. There are lots of delicious variations on this Spanish classic- try a cucumber or watermelon twist if you're feeling adventurous.

7. Miso Soup

In Japan, miso soup is part of a balanced breakfast. Japan also has one of the longest life expectancies in the world. Coincidence? You decide.

6. Lentil Soup

A hearty comfort food, it's affordable, nutritious and satisfying for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Cook with some chopped vegetables, garlic and olive oil and you've got a meal for the whole family.
