Stop What You're Doing and Make This Warming Soup
It’s a crisp winter day and all you can think about is escaping the cold outside. The snow is falling down, and you’re not planning to leave your house all day. Even though you’re snuggled up in blankets and the fire place is lit, you still can’t shake that chill in your bones. When a hot cup of tea doesn’t do the trick, making a warm, delicious soup is a great option.
Filled with nutritious vegetables, this soup has a subtle lemon flavor with soft orzo that gives it a delicious texture. The chicken and chicken stock give this soup a hearty flavor that balances out the tart lemon as well. It’s a light, warming soup that has a smooth, soft texture in every bite. With the addition of heavy cream, a slightly thicker consistency to the soup that makes it even more delightful. Have your friends marvel at how delicious this warming soup is, or simply make it when you’re home and feeling a bit under the weather.
This soup tastes similar to Avgolemono, a popular Greek soup that combines chicken broth, eggs, a grain, like orzo, and lemon juice. This version, however, excludes the eggs yet doesn’t lose any of those tasty flavors found in Mediterranean soups. It’s a fantastic appetizer if you want to have a Greek-themed dinner with stuffed grape leaves, Greek salad, and lamb. You won’t believe how simple the recipe is, and how fantastic this lemony chicken soup turns out!
