My Favorite Soup

October 10, 2017

 

Winds of autumn are blowing, so I cooked up a nourishing pot of soup and wanted to share the goodness with you... This is an excellent way to use lots of veggies and get a thicker, creamier soup without dairy!

 

This recipe is featured on page 130 of my Cook 2 Flourish Cookbook, but in case you don't have it yet, you can still enjoy this warming recipe:

 

Chicken Soup                                                                                     

4 servings

 

1 garlic clove, minced

1 large onion, chopped

3 organic celery ribs with leaves, chopped

½ head cauliflower, chopped into small florets or 1 ½ cups chopped yellow squash

3 cups of chicken broth

1 Tablespoon arrowroot powder, optional

2-3 large organic carrots, sliced

2 cups thinly sliced kale or swiss chard

1 sprig fresh thyme, optional

Dash ground black pepper

Dash cayenne pepper

¼ teaspoon REAL® sea salt

1 teaspoon dried parsley

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 ½-2 cups cooked chicken breast, cut up into bite size pieces

½ cup frozen peas, optional

 

Directions:

1)      Place garlic, onion, celery and cauliflower and broth into a soup pot over medium high heat for 10-15 minutes, or until the veggies are soft and tender.

2)      Remove 1/3 of the broth and as much of the vegetables as possible. Place in a blender or food processor with the arrowroot powder and blend until smooth/pureed, approximately 15-30 seconds. (Tip: if using a blender, keep a firm hand on the lid since the contents are hot).

3)      Add the carrots and greens to the soup pot and simmer 3-5 minutes. Add the spices, chicken and peas (if desired).  

4)       Stir in the pureed vegetables. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes or until carrots are cooked but not mushy.

 

 

 

 

 

5)      Ladle the soup into bowls and serve immediately. Enjoy!!
