Fall and winter soups are always on my list of to dos for easy lunch meals.
Served with some added rice or pasta a dish of hearty soup really warms you up on a cold day and if you make a good size pot you'll have it for several lunches.
You can easily put some in a container and take to work with you. A few crackers served with the soup or some fresh bread is all we need for lunch at our house. Soup and sandwich is a great idea too.
Here's the soup recipe.
4 cups chicken broth
2 carrots diced
1 stalk celery diced
1/2 small onion
2 chicken breasts chopped
10 to 12 medium size meatballs (frozen).
1/2 cup rice
1/2 cup chopped spinach(drained)
Place carrots and celery in a slight amount of oil in large dutch oven. Cook slowly until tender. Add broth, an onion, chicken, meatballs and rice. Cook slowly for approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Note: I made my own chicken soup and meatballs as I usually do and freeze the broth and meatballs for later use in recipes. You can easily use canned broth and store bought meatballs. It all depends on time and preparation.
