Many of us dont find time to cook something healthy at home. Instead, we go to fast food chains such as McDonald’s or Arby’s. Well, I am sure that this does not help you in staying healthy. That’s why I put together a simple recipe for healthy chicken soup in 30 minutes that will feed you the entire week (lunches). Try this healthy recipe and let me know what you think about it.
2lbs of healthy 100% natural chicken breasts
half bag of mixed vegetables
1 small bag of baby spinach
1 bag of green onions
16 oz of yummy mushrooms (optional)
spices (salt, pepper, etc)
half of lemon (or lemon juice)
Make sure you have a good size pot. I dont remember the size of the pot I have at home, but it is pretty decent size and I can feed 10 people easily with one cook off.
Fill the pot with water (half way only)
Well, I started to cook at 9pm. I finished about 9:30. I encourage to cook right not in a hurry. Sometimes depending on the products you are going to use in the soup it may take a little longer to cook. For example, if I add mushrooms and green peppers, then cooking time may increase by another 10 minutes.
Yumm, all the vegetables in one bag. I dont need to go and search for carrots, peas, corn, and other ingridients. Everything is in this bag. Just add it to your soup.
Cooking time is 18 minutes so far and we are almost done with the soup. Just a few touch ups and soup is ready. Meanwhile, relax and wait for another few minutes before adding more ingredients.
Always try to cook your food under small steady heat. Dont try to increase your heat in hopes that you would get soup cooked faster. By increasing the heat, you increase chances of all nutrients to “fly away” from your healthy soup pot.
The soup is almost ready. After you added spinach, you have to let it cook for 4-5 minutes. Then add your favorite spices, and if you wish, add some lemon juice and garlic. Garlic during the winter is always good to eat, it prevents you from getting cold.
