Warm Soup on a Cold Blustery Day

We had our first snowfall here today.  We also had our first sleet of the season.  The wind is going crazy.  We lost power, luckily it was only for a few moments.  We have our fireplace lit and I spent the day in the kitchen making soup and dinner rolls and my cake for #BundtBakers this month.  You will get to see that post on November 20th.

But for today I will share my soup recipe for you to enjoy on your next cold and blustery day.

Chicken Tortellini Soup

8 c. chicken broth, store bought or homemade
2 c. cooked chicken, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 head broccoli crowns, cut into bite size pieces
1 lg. leek, white and light green parts, sliced
1 lg. carrot, peeled and sliced
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1 pkg. refrigerated cheese tortellini

Place chicken broth and vegetables in a large stockpot over med high heat and bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer until carrots and broccoli are tender, 5-10 minutes.  Add bouillon cubes and chicken, continue to simmer until bouillon cube are incorporated.  Add tortellini and heat gently.  Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.   Print RecipeS
