Easy Chicken Lemon Soup

Chicken lemon soup is among my most favorite soups, and it can be yours too. The soup is smooth, velvety, and creamy but also brothy and light like you would imagine any chicken noodle soup to be. A punch of dill and lemons brings in a perfect flavor combination and salts the soups evenly. When you drink this soup, you will not feel the need to eat anything else as it will keep you full for a while. It is equivalent to eating a meal full of good pasta, chicken, and veggies.

The soup is well-balanced, and it is rich with all the healthy goodness. Carrot contains antioxidants, vitamin A, and fiber; it also adds a crunch to the soup. Spinach, on the other hand, is rich in folate and vitamins A, B, and C, vitamin B2, magnesium, manganese, and iron. The soup also has parsley, which is always a staple in my chicken soup due to its health benefits and taste. It is also a great detoxifier, packed with vitamins C and K, and rich in antioxidants.

To make my soup unique, I prefer using gluten-free ingredients. Hence the will be a taste of gluten-free pasta in the soup. Additionally, I love including jovial gluten-free pasta as it can be cooked perfectly too. However, there is other gluten-free pasta that can often fall apart while cooking hence brings frustrating results. If you love eating gluten or orzo, you can as well include wheat pasta.

I also use lots of parsnip, onion, leek, spinach, and carrot. This is because I love my soup to be full of veggies. However, that should not be a limitation for you. You can come up with your own combination of vegetables to meet your preferences. For those who are dairy-free, you can blend ½ cup of cashew in two cups of water.

Lemon juice, capers, sour cream, dill, is all ingredients that will add tanginess to the soup and make it a little sour. When you add them right, it can be so delicious.

Here are another delicious soups: Cream of Pumpkin or Potato Leek Soup!
