This soup has so many healing and immune boosting benefits. If you are under the weather, as I have been here lately, this soup will be great way to get a boost! It seems like in the fall that all the little germies come creeping around. Usually I fight them off; but being “prego”, it is like my body says, “In case you are not tired enough, here be really sic”. =(( Now that I am starting to feel like a human again and am cooking, not too much sounds good for some reason. I have to say, while I was sick hubby and kids lived on nachos, which they liked for a little bit. I lived on broth, which I couldn’t taste. So we were all ready for something with some flavor!!  I was so organized a few weeks ago. So I made nourishing broth from 2 chickens and then took all the meat off, chopped it, and put it in the freezer (in 4 meal portion sizes) I did the same with the broth. This soup was a cinch!! It pays to be organized. Unfortunately this is something I really have to work at it.  This soup has so many healing ingredients in it -like turmeric. Which is a so good for you all the time -bone broth, coconut milk and oil, with all kinds of veggies!! We ate this with a loaded smoothie full of eggshell water, coconut milk, frozen tropical fruit and beef gelatin. It was like eating vitamins but tasted way better!!

Healing Chicken Curry Soup

1 cup chopped carrots

1 onion chopped

1 cup chopped celery 

1/2 cup chopped green pepper 

1/4 cup coconut oil or butter

2 cups cooked chopped chicken

4 cups chicken broth

2 cups coconut milk (I made my own)http://www.mommypotamus.com/how-to-make-coconut-milk-from-shredded-coconut-video-tutorial/

2 TB lemon or lime juice

1 TB fish sauce (optional)

1 TB turmeric

1 TB ginger fresh or 1/2  TB dried

2 TB curry powder

1 tsp red pepper flakes

salt to taste

OPTIONAL: garnish with toasted coconut and fruit marmalade (I used my homemade apple chokecherry butter)

Sweat all veggies in oil till crisp tender

Add all other ingredients

Simmer on low till veggies are all tender.

You might find yourself adding more or less of the seasonings, as some curry powders are stronger than others. So play around with it!!  

 

I have to say this soup has got to be my favorite all around any time!! Thankfully it is also my husbands and kids so I can get away with making it a lot for the cooler weather. Last time I made this my 5 year old little boy closed his eyes and said ” oh Momma you have to make this for my birthday”!!!

You do not want to skip kombucha in this recipe as it really does make the soup!! You can use cooking wine in it’s place but I prefer the taste of kombucha.
