Chicken Pea and Celery Soup

From time to time, I would add a handful of pasta into soups. For this soup, I added around 1/2 cup of orzo in it. I love how you bite into different textures when you drink soup.

Soups are not as boring as one think anymore. For this version, I added abit of parma ham for the flavour and heaps of peas and celery. The hit of chili got to us while we drank this.

You can opt not to blend it but I blended half the soup to have the thicker, creamier flavour. It's a easy, no fail quick dinner!

Chicken Pea and Celery Soup (Serves 4)
50 grams parma ham
2 bird eyes chili chopped
1 red onion sliced
1 500 grams of peas
small bunch of celery chopped
1/2 cup of orzo
ltre of chicken stock
1 chicken breast poached and sliced

Cook parma ham, chili and red onions. Add all the peas and celery tossing it through. Add stock and simmer for around 10 minutes. Blend half the soup and return to pot. Add orzo and cook through. If you have some chicken, stir through and simmer for another 10-15 minutes. Serve with crusty bread.

Happy weekend!
