Ginger Chicken Soup


It is starting to cool down in the evenings here.  Perfect weather for a comforting bowl of soup!  I am excited for soup weather this year, I have so many that I want to make.  This is one that my husband sent to me, probably a year ago.  So it was time that I did him a favor and made it.

It is basically chicken and rice soup, but with lots of ginger.  Because this is such a basic soup, you could take the opportunity to add any veggies your family likes.  Carrots, celery, bell peppers, peas… you name it, it would work.  I took the easy way this time, and just topped the bowls with thinly sliced red bell peppers and green onions.

The ginger is just soothing in this soup.  I don’t know of another way to describe it.  I took a bite, and it was just comforting, and warm, and soothing.  I currently have 8 single serving containers of this in my freezer.  I love to stock my freezer with soup for quick dinners, or lunches all winter.   Serve with a little bread, and I am in heaven!
