Hearty and nourishing, this tomatoey chicken-mushroom soup will warm you right up. Throw in whatever veggies you have on hand. Try a noodle or rice variation by cooking a handful of broken-up lentil spaghetti in the broth or stirring in some leftover cooked grains like brown rice. Up to you! Whatever goes in the pot, a final swirl of olive oil and lemon juice ties everything together.
