that soup tho

It’s fall/winter time here in Minnesota, and that means it’s soup time.

Here’s a super simple, low carb chicken soup I love. I’m still refining the recipe, but I want to share what I have so we can start experimenting with fantastic low carb soups!

  1. Boil about 2 pounds of chicken.
  2. Shred the chicken.
  3. Chop and sautée the following in bacon fat (yes, bacon fat. I:
    1. 2 ribs of celery
    2. 1 lb of carrots
    3. 1-2 cloves of garlic (depending on how much you love garlic. If you’re anything like me, you’ll throw in 47.)
  4. Add 6 cups of low sodium chicken stock.
  5. Add the chicken back in.
  6. Add the following:
    1. 1/4 tsp of crushed basil
    2. 1/2 tsp of salt
    3. 1 tsp black pepper
    4. 1/2 tsp oregano
    5. Anything else you think might taste good.
  7. Boil that up, and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.

Baby you got yourself a stew goin’.

I’ve taken this to work for lunch most days over the past two weeks, and it’s a fantastic midday treat.

What would you add? What would you take out? Who would you serve this too if they were your best friend?
