Chicken, Veggie & Rice Soup

Hello & happy Friday!
Welcome back to Foodie Friday with  Annmarie and Farrah for our kitchen cleanse themed week!
Houston as recovered from our snow days last week, but it has still been rather chilly in the mornings.  The hubs came home from work not feeling so great the other day, so I looked to see what ingredients I had on hand to make some soup for him.
I love how a simple broth combined with some protein, veggies and spices can really boost the immune system and help the healing process speed up!
It seems like people all around me are getting sick left and right!  I spent the first week of Jan in bed and I don’t have time for that these days!  That week I fortunately had off work, so it wasn’t that big of a deal, but that is not always the case!

This soup hits the spot and just makes you feel better.  The spices add a nice kick of flavor while adding health benefits.  I love how simple it is to put together!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked & shredded chicken
  • 3 cups veggies (I used carrots, peas, & celery)
  • 4 cups of organic chicken broth
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 gloves minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp turmeric
  • 1tsp cayanne
  • 2 Tbsp oregano
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground ginger

Directions

  1. Heat avocado oil and add in the garlic.  Sauté for about 2 min.
  2. Add in the veggies and chicken and sauté till veggies are soft.
  3. Add in the rice.
  4. Gently mix in all the spices.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken broth.
  6. Let simmer for 10-15 min.
  7. Enjoy a bowl while recovering from an illness, to warm up or just because!
