Soup with favorite veggies. Don't let the number of ingredients scare you, use what you have! That's what I did.All veggies are cut up bite sizeAll seasoning measurements are approximate & to tasteIf you use canned or frozen veggies, you can shorten the cooking times since they are somewhat pre-cooked.All seasonings shown are dried measurements, not fresh herbs.I made CousCous to go with it, but Barley or rice would be great.

  • 4 large chicken breasts (or whole chicken -meat only)
  • 64 ounces chicken or turkey broth
  • 1 cup Onion chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh Garlic Clove minced
  • 1 to 2 cups carrots - bite size chunks
  • 3 stalks Celery (or 1 t celery seed)
  • 3 yellow summer squash
  • 3 small green zucchini Squash
  • 1 cup portabella mushrooms
  • 1 cup fresh, frozen or canned cut green beans
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen Baby Okra
  • 1 cup (or can) water chestnuts
  • 1 1/2 cup Quartered canned Artichoke hearts
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 t Salt - To taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons basil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 t Curry
  • 1/4 t powdered ginger
  • 1/4 t dill weed
  • 2 Tablespoons jemon juice
How to make it:
  1. In a Large Soup Pot bring the Broth to a boil
  2. Add cut up chicken
  3. Add Seasonings (and Celery seed if using)- Boil 10 minutes
  4. Saute Onion, Garlic & Celery until clear in 1 T Olive Oil - add to broth
  5. Add Carrots (Fresh Okra and Fresh green beans also if using fresh) - allow to boil gently until slightly softened
  6. Add Summer Squash, Zucchini, water chestnuts, Frozen Baby Okra, canned green beans
  7. Add Artichokes, mushrooms & lemon juice in the last 10 minutes before serving.
  8. For a special dinner, remove 2 to 3 cups of the veggies & put in the blender a couple seconds then return the soupy minced mixture to the pot. it will thicken the soup nicely without adding starch but still leave plenty of bite sized veggies.
