This flavorful chicken braise combines cinnamon with a hearty tomato sauce to create a comforting and aromatic Greek dish.  Use some of the sauce to flavor some orzo and you’ve got a tasty side that nicely complements the chicken.  And as a bonus, your kitchen will smell amazing!

Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup with Turmeric and Sweet Smoked Paprika Rice Cakes

Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup with Turmeric and Sweet Smoked Paprika Rice Cakes

Chicken is a staple in our kitchen and a whole roasted chicken is a typical Sunday night meal. We’re in waste not – want not mode, so this week’s roasted chicken leftovers were repurposed into a Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup. We happened to have day old rice in the fridge and decided to make griddled rice cakes to go along with the soup, but you could always add noodles or a wild rice blend for added texture and flavor.

Garbanzo Bean and Chorizo Soup

Garbanzo Bean and Chorizo Soup

I had this for the first time at a friend’s house. She’s known for hosting spontaneous dinner parties of 8 to 10 people that are always perfect – fun, simple, welcoming and just the right amount of chaos. It’s the kind of house where you walk in and immediately feel welcome and at home 

Our group is filled with dietary restrictions (gluten free and dairy no gos), vegetarians who are occasionally pescatarians, dedicated meat eaters and kids ranging in age from 3 months to 8 years old. This soup satisfies all kinds of diners. Right up until you plop yogurt on top, it’s dairy free. Kid’s will happily eat it and the veggies hidden within. It’s gluten free (check your bouillon and Chorizo) and filling. And, most importantly, it’s quick to make!
