1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1-2 carrots, chopped
1-2 ribs celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bunch dino kale, torn off ribs and chopped
1 garlic clove
8 cups organic chicken broth – i pull from my frozen reserves but boxed would do.
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
2 organic chicken breasts, cut in half
1 large organic sweet potato, peeled and chopped into small pieces
1 large organic russet potato, peeled and chopped into small pieces
pasta, brown rice, quinoa, or other grain of your choice (or none. with the potatoes it doesn't really need it. both times i've made it i've used pasta and didn't regret it.)
salt & pepper
heat oil in large soup pot over medium heat.
since there's always plenty of kale left on the rib after i trim them, i set the stack of ribs aside to juice with a few whole leaves while the soup's simmering. so that makes for a great day: juice and homemade soup!
