With the weather being cooler, I love to have soup every day. The key to a great soup is to make a good chicken stock. I use the skin, bones, and juices of my roasted chicken to make an incredible broth. The next key is to chop up a whole onion and saute it for awhile in a half a stick of butter and a quarter cup of olive oil. Let the onion become a little caramelized.
When the onion is nice and light brown, saute a few garlic cloves for several minutes. Then pour in about 6 cups of chicken stock. Heat that up and chop up any vegetables you have on hand. I usually peel and chop of a potato and yam. Then I rinse off a half cup of quinoa and put that in. Quinoa is a very healthy grain. It is easy to digest and tastes fabulous!
I bring that to a boil, turn it to simmer, and simmer 30 minutes. Season it with a couple of teaspoons of sea salt. a teaspoon of curry, a teaspoon of turmeric, a teaspoon of pepper, and a half a teaspoon of cumin or any other seasonings you like. Then I add several cups of chopped up cabbage and organic frozen vegetables. You can add any vegetables you like. Then I chop up several cups of chicken and cook for about ten minutes.
Then start tasting it and add more salt until it tastes perfect for you. I like lots of salt. I usually add some cayenne pepper also. This is the best soup!!! With the gelatin from the stock, it makes a very healthy meal. Enjoy!
