Vegetable Chicken Soup Recipe

Chicken Vegetable Soup

I am giving you here a variation my mother lives on almost daily— Vegetable Chicken Soup as a meal: Nothing gets discarded. It’s the best! If you would rather use chicken breasts, then add 1∕3 cup olive oil to the pot. Do you happen to have lots of leftover turkey bones and scraps, as you often do after a Thanksgiving Dinner? place them all in a giant cheesecloth bag (check out the fabulous wrap ‘n boil bags!), squeeze out as much liquids as you can from the bag (don’t open it!) before discarding. You will left a chicken soup chock-full of vegetables

Ingredients:
1 large onion, quartered
1 large bunch dill
1 bunch flat parsley
8 ribs celery, peeled
1 large carrot
1 large sweet potato
1 large parsnip
1 large turnip
1 large zucchini
12 chicken thighs, skins off
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 good pinches saffron
5-6 bay leaves, or 1 teaspoon ground bay leaf
Salt to taste

Instructions:

Put three quarts (12 cups) water to boil in a large pot. While water is heating, coarsely grind the onion, dill, parsley and celery in a food processor. Throw the ground mixture in the pot. Grate all vegetables in a food processor (if you have a little more time and you are in a more patient mood, spend an extra few minutes and dice them), and add to the soup with all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium, and cook covered 1 hour. Adjust texture and seasonings.

For more presentation, take out the thighs, discard the bones, shred the meat by hand, and return to the pot.

    This recipe is great. I like the way it makes its own flavourful stock. Both my husband and mother-in-law liked it.

      Of course not, it is supposed to look the way all soups look. This is why at the end of each of my soup recipes, I instruct the reader to adjust the texture and seasonings. It’ s always recommended to err on the side of caution and add water if necessary!
