What did the Seattle Seahawks and Robert Barnett have in common this season? They were pursuing back-to-back championships in two of the most prestigious contests of the year.
We all know what happened to the Seahawks. But could Robert defend his title of top soup-chef in 2015? The odds were certainly stacked against him. This year’s battle of the broth had the most entries in Souper Bowl history: 14.
Leading up to the competition, penalty-centric posters hyped up the chefs and judges alike. The officials made it clear that any deflated bowls or illegal soupstitutions would not be tolerated.
After a good, clean game, Robert’s E-Hominy Soup took second place behind Dan O’Brien’s tasty Thai Shrimp Soup. And first-time entrant Jenn Rodrigues snagged third place with her Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.
Every single soup was delicious, but special congratulations to Dan, Robert, and Jenn for taking home the highest honors. Feel free to try out Dan’s winning recipe below. You’ll be glad you did.
