Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Soup – a Nourishing Bowl of Comfort

What’s better on a cold winter evening than a nourishing bowl of soup? Not much. I should know. My family eats a lot of homemade soup in the colder months.

See, when soup is made with the right ingredients it’s incredibly nourishing.  I make soups with homemade bone broth, which is one of my secrets for how to prevent the stomach virus.  Bone broth contains many vital nutrients and minerals. It’s probably the most frugal, yet nourishing, food my family eats.

Since I’m the only one in my family who enjoys drinking bone broth from a mug, I make soups several times per month to make sure my family is getting their “dose” of this wonder food.

This creamy chicken and vegetable soup is definitely going to be part of our monthly soups for a long time to come! It’s super to easy to make. It uses leftovers if you have them. It’s a truly frugal but hearty dish the whole family will love.

Here’s the recipe. There’s a printable version below.

Ingredients

4 Tbsp gluten-free 1-to-1 baking flour (You can use regular organic flour or sprouted flour if you tolerate gluten)
4 Tbsp butter
2-3 quarts of homemade bone broth
2 chicken breasts shredded (Sometimes I use the leftovers from a whole chicken)
1 cup of cream (you can use half-and-half, as well)
24 oz frozen soup veggies (Or fresh diced carrots, onions, peas, potatoes, etc)
1 Tbsp dried celery (or a few stalks of fresh celery, chopped)

fresh ground pepper to taste
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder

Optional: 1 tsp each of dried rosemary, dried thyme, and dried marjoram

Instructions
1. In  large pot on the stove top over medium heat, melt the butter then add the flour, garlic powder, and onion powder and whisk to form a roux.
2. Add one quart of chicken broth at a time to the pot, stirring occasionally as the liquid thickens. Don’t add another quart until the mixture has thickened. You may use 2-3 quarts of broth depending on how thick you want your soup.
3. When the mixture has thickened to your liking add the chicken, vegetables, celery, salt and pepper. Add the dried herbs if you’re using them.
4. Cook over medium-low heat until the vegetables are cooked and tender, but not mushy.
