I threw some favorite ingredients together … that happened to work well for MyBrattyTasteBuds tonight!
Chicken Kale Soup
(Yesterday, I roasted an organic chicken. This recipe uses the leftovers from that.)
Place in crock pot and cook for 6 hours:
1 chicken carcass (from organic roasted chicken)
cooking liquid from the roasted chicken, plus 8 cups water
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. turmeric
Remove bones, and strain mixture, leaving broth in large pot.
Add, bring to boil, turn down heat and simmer for about 20-30 minutes:
4-6 small golden beets, peeled and cut into chunks
2 tsp. turmeric
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 tsp. ginger root, grated (or Dorot frozen ginger)
1 tsp. sea salt
Add two chicken breasts, cut into chunks. Cook for about 15 minutes.
Add 2 cups fresh or frozen kale and cook until soft.
Kitchens and I … definitely a love/hate thing. LOVE successful meals, hate the cleanup. HATE experiments that fail, hate the cleanup. LOVE that my husband cleans up as a thank you for all meals, successful or not … at least most of the time!
Full disclosure time: I’m getting a little tired of all the cooking that Paleo entails. I think I’ve hit a wall of sorts. I know I will pass through the wall and come out into the sunshine again, but let’s fact it. I’m heading into my least favorite months … winter … where lots of cooking is expected … and that doesn’t exactly excite me.
Except for soups. I LOVE soups. And I have a crock pot and a Vitamix. Haven’t made a Vitamix soup yet, but eager to give that a try. Should be quick, don’t you think?
But today, I found a recipe on the Everyday Paleo website I’m going to try. Crock pot, chicken, coconut milk and spices.
