12 Dec Healthy Chicken Veggie Soup
On these snowy days my body is calling for Chicken Soup!
This is sooooooooooooooo good for the body and soul!
Healthy Chicken Veggie Soup
Whole chicken or a few chicken legs or a few chicken breasts
3-4 ribs of celery
3-4 large carrots
2 medium onions
5-6 garlic cloves
1 package frozen spinach or 1 bag fresh
1 head broccoli or 1 bag frozen
1 package sliced fresh mushrooms (optional)
any other vegetables you have around and want to add
5-6 eggs, beaten in a bowl
garlic powder (optional)
Other herbs to taste (rosemary, thyme,etc.)
Boil chicken in large pot until cooked. (note: if using chicken breast instead of whole chicken, chicken broth can be used in place of water). Remove from water and chop into small pieces.
Add chopped celery, carrots, onions, garlic cloves to boiling water. Add turmeric, curry, oregano, basil, cayenne, parsley, sea salt, pepper and garlic or herbs to the boiling water. I add 1-2 TBSP of each except cayenne, which I add about ½ tsp or to taste.
Boil until vegetables are cooked. add spinach, mushrooms and broccoli. While stirring, add beaten eggs slowly so that they distribute (it will look similar to egg drop soup). Boil 2 minutes until eggs cooked, remove from heat and serve.
