Poached Chicken and Winter Vegetable Soup
A nutrient-dense and nourishing poached chicken and winter vegetable soup. Perfect for those cold weather days – and it takes less than 20 minutes to make!
When you live in California you get spoiled with glorious sun, idyllic beaches and near perfect weather 90% of the year. It’s lovely! And it’s why I always come back, after having traveled around the world (several times over!). But for one to two months, between January and February, we get chilly, stormy, rainy weather. Well, at least it’s chilly, stormy and rainy for us (ha!) – it’s all relative, right?
So what’s a Cali girl to do when inclement weather strikes? Break out the oft-forgotten (but super cute) rain boots and rain coats….and go splash around in the puddles! That’s what I did a couple weeks ago when the rain came pouring down in Los Angeles. And when I was done, I unbundled my layers, put a few logs on the fireplace and made a warming, nourishing bowl of chicken vegetable soup.
As a gluten-free gal I don’t put noodles in my soup (unless they’re “zoodles!”), so I jam-pack my soup with hearty winter vegetables. Carrots, parsnips, leeks, celery and onions. Nutrient-dense veggies that keep my gut happy!
I also love this soup because it comes together quite quickly, with the chicken poaching while the vegetables cook. All-in-all, it takes less than 20 minutes! Then, the only thing left for you to do is shred the chicken, fill your bowls and top with fresh parsley for a pop of herb-y goodness. Oh, and go perch your feet up beside the fireplace, of course!
