I love this soup because it is an easy way to take in powerfully nutritious greens. While I love my green juices in theory, in reality, my stomach doesn’t always agree with them, especially when it’s cold outside. That’s when it’s time to make Green Chicken Soup. Somehow, the carrots and kale give the soup a delicious sweet flavor, which makes this high protein, gluten free soup very grounding, and even more comforting than it already is.
Green Chicken Soup
- 2 quarts chicken stock
- 1 bunch kale, chopped
- 3 carrots, sliced
- 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup shredded chicken (optional, though nice)
If you are starting entirely from scratch and making your own Roasted Chicken Stock, then after you have roasted the chicken for your stock, pick the meat from the bones and set aside in the fridge –you will add it to the finished soup later.
- Place chicken stock in a soup pot over medium heat, reserving 2 cups stock
- Take reserved stock and blend it with kale in a vitamix, until smooth and creamy
- Pour kale-stock mixture into pot of chicken stock
- Add carrots and mushrooms (and shredded chicken if you have it)
- Cook for 30 minutes, or until carrots are tender
