This delicious hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup will warm you up on these chilly spring days!
Indeed, even though I made this soup few weeks back, I would like to have a large bowl right now. Some of you are having lovely warm sunny days while here, in Ontario, winter has come back once again. Right now I am writing this post while it’s heavily snowing outside. Ughh!
There’s a fact. I was eating this Chicken Vegetable Soup for 3 weeks in a row.
Probably, I should clarify. I didn’t mean I was eating one pot of soup for 3 weeks. That’s too much. I am that guy who prefers to eat fresh things. Well, I used to reject most of the things the next day after they were cooked. Now I understand that a lot of things are much better the next day. The only one thing I unlikely will leave for the next day is a salad. Because there’s nothing worse than green leaves which have started to wilt.
But soup, especially a chicken one, is another story. It gets only better within a few days. Please note it gets better being kept in the fridge. If you leave it at room temperature for a while, there’s a risk it won’t stay that delicious for a long:)
Anyways, one Sunday I made a large pot of this Chicken Vegetable Soup for a whole week. It turned out very delicious and hearty (No wonder!). However, I didn’t take any pictures since the broth wasn’t really clear. That’s why I repeated the soup the next Sunday making sure the broth was good enough. As a result, I was enjoying with a bowl of this hearty soup every day on those gloomy days. It wasn’t enough. I decided to make a version of the soup on the third Sunday in a row. It was basically the same, but I added some lemon juice and orzo. I didn’t manage to take any pictures since that day I got sick.
There’s nothing complicated in this Chicken Vegetable Soup. The broth is very simple – I am not a fan of cooking broth for hours. Besides, I don’t like the intense broth either. This light and not overpowering taste of chicken and veggies is the best for me.
Talking about the veggies, I picked the classic celery, carrots, and jalapeno for some heat. I also flavored the soup with some cilantro. Fell free to add some carbs such as potatoes, small shaped pasta such as orzo, rice, or even quinoa.
It really is a hearty dish to warm you up on a cold gloomy day!
Are you felling like eating one thing over and over again now? What is that?
