10 Yummy Soups That Will Warm This Up This Season

Yummy Yummy Yummy in our mother loving tummies. Y’all it is my favorite time of year and it was not a season or a holiday. It is SOUP TIME. Soups are so delicious and will warm your soul up even on the chilliest of nights. Below I have found some kickass chicken, beef, a vegetable soup that will light a fire under your ass and keep you going as the temperatures continue to dip. 

1. Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Don’t be fooled y’all. This is no ordinary chicken soup, this is a chicken soup that has gotten a makeover and it is early to ball out all over your taste buds. This soup is made with orzo which is a large grain of rice that is shaped like a piece of pasta. It gives it that upgrade. The best part of the soup, in my opinion, is the freshly squeezed lemon juice. That concoction will wake you up real quick and give you an extra pep in your step! Interested? Here is what you will need:

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 3 carrots, peeled and diced
    • 2 stalks celery, diced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 5 cups chicken stock
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 3/4 cup uncooked orzo pasta
    • 1 sprig rosemary
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Ight once you got those fresh ingredients here is what you will need to do in order to make this dankness. First, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Then, season chicken with salt and pepper. After, add chicken to the stockpot and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes; set aside. After that step add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pot. Add garlic, onion, carrots and celery. Stir until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in thyme until fragrant, this will take about 1 minute. After, whisk in chicken stock, bay leaves and 1 cup water; bring it to a boil. Stir in orzo, rosemary and chicken. After reduce heat and simmer until orzo is tender, this will take about 10-12 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and parsley; season with salt and pepper, to taste. THEN, ENJOY THAT SHIZNIT.
