I LOVE soup! I have made this soup twice now and it is yummy and satisfying! I tweaked a couple of the ingredients, but it is right out of The Paleo Diet book by Loren Cordain, Ph.D. Here you go.
Chicken Vegetable Soup
6 cups water
Meat of 1 whole chicken, diced up ( ok so this is where I took a short cut-I bought a rotisserie chicken and cut all the meat out of it)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp black pepper
6 fresh tomatoes, diced (ok i can’t lie…another short-cut…i used two small 14 oz. cans of petite diced tomatoes and their juice)
2 small zucchini, sliced thin
3 carrots, diced
In a large pot, combine water, chicken, garlic, onion, bay leaf, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about two hours (I only simmered one hour) until chicken is tender. Remove bay leaf and discard. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for about twenty minutes or until veggies are tender. Serves six.
