Broccoli and Kale Chicken Soup
Nutrient dense, easy to make, and full of natural flavors, my Broccoli and Kale Chicken Soup is a weekly meal in my house. Try it for dinner tonight! I’ve always been a fan of simple meals with minimal ingredients but this one is also a favorite for the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water it delivers. The fact that there are always leftovers doesn’t hurt either.
Another reason the ingredient list is so simple is due to my lengthy list of dietary restrictions. A few years ago I never would have thought someone who didn’t have restrictions would choose my soup for dinner. It’s so simple; but every time I make it, someone with a healthy gut wants some. I think it the scent of all those spices coming together. When I post pics of my soup on Instagram or Facebook, I always get requests for the recipe. So here it is.
While I prefer not to discuss my health issues or focus on what I can’t have, I definitely want to share this simple recipe based on the foods that I love and make me feel good. You can add whatever you like. My sweetheart, Steve, enjoys a little cilantro and lime in his bowl. My mom likes to add squash and zucchini. For some, a grain like quinoa would make a great addition. Whatever you choose to add, keep it simple and let the natural flavors of the food come through.
