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 or Kettle & Fire Bone Broth
- 1 bunch kale, chopped
- 3 carrots, sliced
- 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup shredded chicken (optional though nice)
- 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

Kelly, that sounds delicious!
I love this recipe. I’ve trying to add ore greens in creative ways and this is so tasty. Thanks
I made this for dinner tonight and it was delish! My hubby, who is very picky even liked it and he is not a soup person. I now have lunch for tomorrow and I am so excited to try more of your recipes. I have already made the Cauliflower rice, the Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs as well as the grilled broccoli. So many options to choose from! Thanks again for all of your wonderful recipes.

Your book has changed my life. I have bought countless copies and given them out as gifts. I have catered little parties with my family and girlfriends introducing them to your wonderful goodies. I have a strong event planning background and work on a weekly television program for wedding planning. I am hoping to have a private discussion with you regarding taking some of the products to farmers markets this season. I have altered a few of the recipies and I want to be respectful of you since I give you full credit for develping this wonderful and simple gluten free/ almond flour concept.
Please email me at your earliest convienance.
