Soup season is nearly upon us, and if you are looking for a healthy, comforting soup recipe to add to your repertoire, Jennifer Garner can help.
The mom of three and co-founder of an organic baby food company shared one of her favorite soup recipes on her Instagram page. The dish — Roast Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup — already has us drooling.
As you can see, this is a recipe from Martha Stewart. Garner swears by it and says she has been making it for years. And, like many busy parents, Garner has made the recipe even easier with shortcuts such as using broth made from a box instead of making your own from scratch.
The recipe comes together with just a few simple ingredients: Chicken, chicken broth, lemon, shallots and brown rice. The beauty of this basic recipe is that you can doctor it to your family’s specific tastes — for example, by adding favorite veggies such as carrots, celery or peas, or by increasing or decreasing the amount of lemon if your family wants less of that citrus zing. There are so many ways to be inventive with chicken soup, and this recipe is an amazing base for that creativity.
Opt for whole-wheat noodles to keep this dish healthy and hearty. You could try noodles that come in fun shapes, such as Pastabilities Organic Kids Dinosaur Pasta or Kraft Pasta Shapes’ letters and numbers.
Here’s one more way to make it even easier to get this Roast Lemon Chicken Soup on the table: Use a rotisserie chicken instead of roasting a whole chicken yourself at home. Just shred the chicken and toss into your soup pot, then follow the rest of the steps. Serve with crunchy whole-wheat rolls and a fresh green salad. And there you have it: A delicious, comforting chicken soup dinner that will warm your body and soul.
