This soup is so yummy. It's comforting, and hearty. It's packed with vitamins and has a hint of sweet. One of my best girl friends, and star massage therapist, Kym, is the queen of healthy soups. Her potato based soups, and broth based soups, sausage soups and veggies soups... they are just all AMAZING. So I was intimidated to try to make a soup that would satisfy all my soup-loving needs.
And then I made this one. And even Mr. Charming swooned over it.
It's actually really simple to make. You'll need a large pot or soup pot, the ingredients below and an appetite! Bon Appetit!
1 yellow onion, diced
1 can organic coconut milk
3 cups of cooked, shredded chicken (I use the roasted Sprouts chicken)
2 small white sweet potatoes, cubed
1/2 tbl coconut oil
1 head of steamed broccoli, chopped
6 cups of vegetable broth or homemade bone broth
sea salt to taste
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
In your stock pot, saute the onion in coconut oil until translucent. While your onion is cooking, prep the vegetables and shred your cooked chicken breasts. Once the onions are done, add seasonings, potato, broccoli, coconut milk and broth.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for ten minutes. Add shredded chicken into the soup and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
P.S. This soup is REALLY good second day. Make a big batch and heat it for lunch leftovers. The flavors have a chance to marry and it is exceptional.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
