A gloomy and rainy day always screams one thing in my head when the "Whats for dinner?" question comes about. In my household, rain equals soup. What's better on a rainy day than opening the windows and making a batch of soup in comfy clothes. I guess a glass of wine can always make it better but anyways, back to the soup...
Tonight's soup of choice was a new spin on an old classic, Sriracha Tortellini Soup
Serves 4 people
-1 32 ounce box chicken stock(I prefer low sodium and natural)
-1 12-14 ounce can chicken stock
-2 carrots, peeled
-2 tablespoons garlic
-heaping 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
-20 ounce tortellini of choice(I used frozen spinach and cheese)
-desired parmesan cheese and sriracha
Bring stock, carrots, garlic and pepper to a boil. Toss in torts and spinach until cooked. Top with parmesan cheese and desired sriracha swirl.
I love this recipe because by peeling the carrots it speeds up the cook time to next to nothing which makes it ideal for a weeknight dinner. On top of that, the cheese and sriracha marry together resulting in a tantalizing broth. Like, tip the bowl back and drink every last drop. I'm not kidding.
PS: If your looking for a rainy day breakfast, I say you go with a nanercake!
Tell me, what are your go-to rainy day eats?
