real food. real life.
I knew I wanted soup tonight! It was -20 degrees outside and the sniffles and cough were settling in. I wanted something to soothe the soul, but also clear the sinuses! This soup is a new favorite for me, adapted slightly from the traditional chicken and vegetable soup, this one has a definite kick that will clear you out! I can't take credit for this one, I found it on cleaneatingmag.com, a website found on my Internet Favorites Bar!
Total Time from start to finish: About 30 minutes
What we used:
Drizzle of Oil for cooking
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 chicken breasts, slightly thawed, chopped into bite-size pieces
Veggies: 2 carrots, 1 small head of broccoli, 1 sweet potato, chopped
No-Salt Organic Chicken Stock Bouillon mixed with 2-3 cups water
Coconut Milk, about a cup
1 tsp red chilli flakes
4 tsp dried cilantro
Sea Salt/Pepper to taste
squeeze of a fresh lemon slice
What we did:
1) Heat oil with onion and garlic until slightly brown. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink.
2) Add veggies and broth. Let it come to a slight boil and simmer while veggies cook through, about 10 minutes.
3) Add spices and coconut milk. Let sit a little bit to let the flavours mix together. Add a sqeeze of the lemon juice right before serving - makes it very fresh and vibrant tasting.
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
