Soups On .......

Now that our weather has turned into definite fall weather it's time to put away my salad recipes
and start delving into the comforting part of the recipe box.
I have been making a lot of soup.
Here are a couple of great recipes that are quick and very daaahlicious.....
One is made with chicken and store bought gnocchi

4 boneless chicken breast
1 TBSP veg oil
1 onion diced
1 orange pepper diced (0r 1 carrot diced---- I am not a fan of cooked carrots)
1 stalk celery diced
4 cloves garlic minced
1 TBSP oregano
pinch of S and P
900 ml chicken broth
500g store bought gnocchi
Cut chicken in cubes --- Saute chicken and veggies in veg oil ---Add broth and 1 cup water --- Bring to boil --- Simmer 10 mins --- Taste and adjust seasoning --- Add gnocchi --- Simmer 5 to 10 mins

Make sure you go the extra step and make this Spinach Remolada.

1 cup chopped spinach
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic finely minced
Mix together and top each bowl

It for sure is a huge flavor in this soup

And this one with Chorizo, White Beans, and Kale

30 g Spanish smoked chorizo
1 cup chopped onion
6 cloves minced garlic
3 cups chicken broth
2 - 425g cans cannellini (or white kidney) beans
4 cups chopped Kale
Saute sausage with onion and garlic about 5 mins
Add broth --- bring to boil
Add beans
Stir in Kale
As always taste and adjust your seasonining
I added a couple teaspons of organo and a teaspoon of red chili flakes to mine
Cook 5 to 10 mins
Sprinke each bowl with cracked black pepper
Serve with crusty buns

My plan for the first part of fall is to make one new soup recipe a week.

What's for supper at your place tonight?
