There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of Homemade Chicken Soup.

There’s nothing better than a bowl of homemade chicken soup when you’re feeling sick. Got an email last night that my friend who’s going through chemo for breast cancer just came down with a cold.  Poor thing.  She’s supposed to get chemo again in a few days, so praying that getting plenty of rest, fluids and some good ‘ol homemade chicken soup will help make her feel better quickly.

I put on a pot of chicken soup last night and let it simmer for almost 3 hours.  To make it nutrient rich, I added onion, garlic, leek, carrots, celery, potatoes, sweet potato, and
kombu. I also threw in some peppercorns, bay leaves and allspice berries.  This recipe is from Rebecca Katz’s Cancer Fighting Kitchen.  It’s basically her Magic Mineral Broth plus chicken.

Now that I had my chicken soup base, I could make almost any soup I wanted.

Easy Chicken Soup with Pasta

6 cups chicken broth
2 carrots, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup cooked chicken breast, diced
1 cup cooked pasta (I used whole wheat Israeli couscous, but any small pasta will do)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste

Put broth, vegetables and thyme in pot and simmer 15-20 minutes, until vegetables are tender.  Add chicken, pasta, salt and pepper to taste.
