super easy soup that you make from ingredients that you probably already have on hand.

4 C. chicken broth
1/4 onion, diced
1/2 C. Beach Blonde (or other dry white wine)
1 rib celery, diced
1 t. Herbs d’Provence
4 baby carrots, diced (or 1 regular carrot)
1 T olive oil
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 C. cooked diced chicken (or leftover turkey)
4 T cooked rice (or orzo pasta, or Quinoa, or . . .)
1/2 C. spinach or kale or collards or other tangy green, chopped
4 scallions, finely sliced
2 T. Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream

This is a pantry soup because it uses things you probably already have in your pantry or fridge. We get so little rain in California these days, that when rain finally comes, it’s nice to be able to create a soup without having to go shopping! In a big pot over medium heat, saute the onion, celery and carrotsin the olive oil until softened. Add the Herbs d’Provence and stir for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the wine and let the wine reduce by halfish. Add the broth, the cream of chicken soup and the chicken or turkey and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the greens and let simmer for 5 more minutes (until greens are tender). Add salt and pepper to taste. Put 2 T of rice, grains or pasta in the bottom of each of 2 pretty bowls. Ladel the soup on top. Top with a float of Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream and a sprinkle of scallions. Tastes just like Chicken Pot Pie – in a soup!! So easy. So comforting!!
