I was totally planning on reviewing a book today, but the weather changed, and it’s so incredibly beautiful! There is RAIN! And coolness! Hallelujah!
Not that the weather changing automatically edges out a book review, of course–I could wax rhapsodic about the change AND do a review–but I was pondering my dinner plan on the phone with my friend Andrea, and she pointed out to me that soup could actually be an option again. Yay soup! Onto Pinterest I went, and since my older girls have piano from 3-4 on Fridays, I went with this Vegan Lemon Chickpea Orzo Soup.
In all fairness, mine wasn’t vegan–I don’t stock vegetable broth, since chicken works for us. I also substituted half oregano, half basil for the thyme, because thyme does not so much work for us. And none of my children loved it as much as I did, because I alone in my household fully appreciate the beauty of lemon. They all ate it, however, and oh, I enjoyed it! No meat to thaw, no long term cooking–easy and fast and delicious. (Not to mention fairly healthy!) If it’s soup weather where you are, give this a try!
