Anyway, Drew didn't want me to try any new recipes out on them, so we decided to finish Day 6 and 7 of the meal planner this week.
This was the easiest soup I have ever made! I will guess it took me about 20 minutes total to cook this soup. Plus, I saved 10 minutes by preparing the orzo pasta when I had to cook it for the last meal that required it. I will add that it is probably the most delicious soup I have ever made. Drew had a bit of a sore throat today and said the soup was a perfect match meal for it. So, without further ado....
Here are our verdicts:
Heather: This was an excellent combination of flavors and textures. The crunchiness of the celery balanced the mushiness that I dislike about mushrooms. The orzo and chicken were complimentary as well. I really enjoyed the lemon flavor of the broth. The parsley gave the soup a very healthful taste. I loved that the soup contained so much protein, with the combo of cannellini beans and chicken. I rate this an 8, which is a high rating from me for a soup.
