One way to make it through the cold temperatures of winter? SOUP! I’ve made this chicken vegetable bone broth soup time and time again for it’s healing properties. Between delicious vegetables and a nourishing bone broth base, you can’t go wrong.
This chicken vegetable bone broth soup contains a mixture of carrots, parsnips, celery, and onion, but you could always tailor to your taste! The bone broth gives your chicken and veggie soup SO much flavor and key nutrients. Bone broth is made by simmering chicken bones and vegetables in water anywhere from 12-48 hours on the stove top. It is a lot thicker than chicken stock due to the collagen pulled from the bones. So, even if you decided not to add chicken here, you’re still getting tons of protein from the collagen (mine had about 10g per serving)! Bone broth is said to help your gut, joints, and keep allergies at bay.
What you’ll need:
- ½ onion
- 2 TBSP garlic
- 3 ribs celery
- 2 C carrot
- 1 C parsnip
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 2 TBSP lemon juice
- 4 C bone broth
- 1 C water
- Noodles (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
How to Make The Soup
First, I made mine in this dutch oven, It was a wedding gift that I absolutely love! Dutch ovens can get pretty pricey, here’s one I found on Amazon that is more affordable. I love cooking soup/chili in a Dutch oven, distributes the heat evenly when sauteing the veggies.
Chop your onion, celery, carrot, and parsnip. Add to your Dutch oven/pot with the minced garlic. Soften the vegetables on a medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Add bone broth, water, spices and bring to a boil. Once boiling add chicken, reduce heat and let simmer for at least 20 minutes.
I heard from a friend once that if you’re going to add noodles, cook them on the side and add them when you’re ready. The noodles will absorb some of the liquid from the soup, so if you want to add them at the time of cooking, make sure you add some extra liquid!
Store your soup in the fridge or serve immediately. Enjoy!
