Why you’ll love this recipe:

  • This soup is loaded with veggies. Of course, you can add some noodles or pearl couscous for additional heartiness if you desire.
  • This soup is so good for you, thanks to the nutrient-rich herbal bone broth.
  • This chicken soup is not only delicious, it’s filled with prebiotic soluble fiber. The broth is made with dandelion root. The best way to extract most of these benefits from their roots is by simmering or boiling, so I put them into a pot with water and other healthy herbs like ginger for more flavor as well!
  • It’s got sweet potatoes, which are high in fiber and antioxidants. They’re also incredibly rich in beta carotene, which is converted to vitamin A to support your immune system.
  • It’s easy to throw together. As long as you’ve made your broth, you only need a few sliced veggies, a rotisserie chicken, and a little patience.

Ingredients:

  • Bone broth: We use our ultra healing dandelion root-infused bone broth. You can use any bone broth or chicken stock.
  • Ginger: Adds a little kick, and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and aids in digestion.
  • Garlic: Garlic is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. I used 8 cloves of garlic in this soup.
  • Mirepoix: Otherwise known as onion, celery, and carrot, cooked together in a little butter for flavor.
  • Bell pepper: Great source of flavor, fiber, and vitamin A, which will help support your immunne system.
  • Chicken: Just buy a rotisserie chicken and call it a day, plus then you can use the bones to replenish your healing bone broth stock.
  • Fresh herbs: Herbs like rosemary, thyme and sage add additional healing benefits and flavor in this recipe.
  • Sweet Potato: Great source of flavor, fiber, and vitamin A, which will help support your immunne system.

Serving and storage:

Serve soup hot with a slice of sourdough!

Saftey:

Don’t put a large pot of hot soup directly into your refrigerator. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, it would take an 8-inch stock pot of steaming chicken soup a long time to cool to a safe temperature in your refrigerator. To be safe:

  • To speed cooling, transfer soup to shallow containers, making sure soup is no more than TWO inches deep. Refrigerate promptly.
  • Soup can also be chilled in an ice or cold water bath before refrigerating.
  • You can place loosely covered foods in the refrigerator while still warm; cover when food is completely cooled.
  • When serving soup a second time, reheat it until it’s steaming hot throughout, at least 165 °F.
