There are two things I always seem to have in the fridge, that is zucchini and lemons which makes this so PERFECT.
It’s the any-time soup!
It only takes minutes to make, and you’ll be enjoying a hot bowl of deliciousness.
This soup calls for minimal ingredients but the LEMON is the true winner here.
I just love lemon in my soup, I even like adding lemon to chicken noodle soup
Another of my favorite soups is lemon chicken orzo soup, if you haven’t made it, you should!
If you prefer your soups creamy, by all means… add in some cream about 1/4- 1/2 cup will do.
Let’s talk about chicken broth (or chicken stock) you can use any variety you like the taste of, or use water and chicken boulion they sell chicken boulion in a cream paste, dry powder or cubes. You can alternatively use stock from chicken bones you’ve boiled yourself as well as what ever type of chicken broth you prefer the taset of… is what will make any soup more appealing to you.
I do not prefer the taste of low sodium broth in soup, soup without sodium tastes like dishwater… to me, enough said on that matter!
Use what you like, but my preference is to add salt and pepper to taste when the soup is finished cooking, that way you can adjust it to your liking.
I like that this recipe is made in mintues and is perfect for a quick lunch or the beginning to a great dinner, soup helps fill you up if you’re trying to watch what you eat “they” recommend that you eat a small cup of soup before eating dinner so that you don’t overeat and this soup can certainly be “that” soup.
Also soup and a sandwich is another great otpion for fast meals that taste great, pair this soup with a grilled havarti cheese sandwich for the WIN, or any type of sandwich you prefer!
