Stay warm with a bowl of this delicious Creamy Greek Lemon Soup. It’s perfect for a cool fall or winter evening. Our whole family enjoys it with a piece of crunchy French loaf bread. It tastes exactly like the soup you can get at any Greek diner! The best part is that you can make it all in own bowl or even put it in a slow cooker to enjoy after your work day.
What To Serve With Greek Soup
This is a one-bowl meal. I love that it’s so filling and comforting. You don’t necessarily need to add anything else with it because the chicken and rice add bulk. However, it’s great with a loaf of French bread and a side salad. You can serve it alongside a traditional Greek salad with Kalamata olives.
Reheating Lemon Greek Soup
After making, store your soup in an air-tight container. You can reheat it as leftovers several ways. Pour it back into a medium stock pan and reheat over medium to high heat until warmed. Or pour an individual serving in an Microwave-Friendly Soup Mug (commissioned link) – which is my favorite way. I enjoy my mug of leftover soup while watching a great movie on the couch. Just start a fire and you’ve got a perfect winter night.
