This chicken soup might not cure a flu, because only time and meds do that, but it surely warms up the tummy and soul! The smell of bubbling chicken soup filling up the house is one of those smells that make you feel at home. It has leeks, carrots, homemade rich chicken broth, chicken thigh pieces, vermicelli to thicken the soup a little, baby spinach, and lemon juice. Serve it warm with lemon wedges and chili flakes for some heat.
This soup is a mix between the classic onion soup and the famous pumpkin soup! The sweetness of caramelized onions marries perfectly with the creamy deliciousness of butternut squash, cream, thyme, and a touch of nutmeg. For extra indulgence, I serve it with cheesy toasts. What I really want is to cozy up in my favorite spot and eat a big soul warming bowl of this. Such a treat!
