Now that it’s finally Fall and cool and rainy here in the Pacific Northwest, there is nothing better than a warm, comforting bowl of soup!
Soups are one of the easiest things to make, basically you can put whatever you want in and it’s good to go! I’m a big fan of one pot meals, quick and easy.
2 T butter
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 t Italian seasoning
S&P to taste
1 whole rotisserie chicken, meat removed and shredded or chopped
5 strips cooked bacon, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed (optional)
1 cup kale, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
In a large soup pot, melt butter and add onions, carrots, garlic and Italian seasoning. Saute until beginning to soften.
Add canned tomatoes, chicken broth, chicken, bacon, kale and beans.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer soup for about 30 mins until carrots and beans are tender.
Taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper to your liking.
Stir in heavy cream before serving.
Top with Parmesan cheese and serve with crispy bread or crackers. Yum!
