This is a go-to winter recipe for our household. Anymore, it seems like it's so expensive to choose healthy/quality foods. I added up the total cost of ingredients used to make this soup, and to my surprise, it was just about $20 (for 10 servings!!!). Plus, I get to save the bones to make bone broth, which isn't cheap to buy. I don't know where else you can find a $2.00 meal that's 100% organic and packed with protein and vegetables other than in your own kitchen. Here's what you'll need:
-1 organic whole chicken (I buy mine at Costco, they have 2 packs for 19.99).
-1 bunch of organic celery
-8 large organic carrots
-2 organic yellow onions
-1 package of organic broccoli slaw (or use your own leftover broccoli stems and slaw it yourself, for a no waste option)
-1 large bunch of fresh organic parsley
-1 tablespoon of organic thyme
-1.5 tablespoons of pink Himalayan salt
-water to desired consistency (I made mine pretty hearty, so it was about half water, half everything else in the pot).
Make ahead of time for a quick and easy dinner that can be pulled out of the fridge and reheated.
Create a double batch in a really large stock pot and freeze half for when life gets crazy and you don't have time to cook.
Save the bones each time you make soup with a bone-in meat, and make your own bone broth instead of buying it.
It's okay to substitute dried parsley for fresh- you'd probably need at least 4 tablespoons. The fresh parsley was about 1 cup.
