Chicken Soup with Baby Kale

on January 11, 2014





This soup was really good and perfect to have in the cold weather!  Actually, it was much better the second day as left overs!  We liked ours sprinkled with some crushed red pepper to give it some heat.  Yum!


  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 3 shallots, sliced thin
  • 1 Tbs ginger (I used freeze-dried)
  • 1 Tbs garlic (I used freeze-dried)
  • 1 lb chicken, cubed (I used thighs, but breast would work great, too)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or more if you like it spicy)
  • 4-6 cups bone broth (mine was beef)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3-4 small zucchini, sliced
  • 5 oz baby kale (or 1 bunch of regular kale, stemmed and torn in pieces)
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • salt and pepper

Heat oil in soup pot, add shallots and cook til brown.  Turn heat to medium and add ginger, garlic, and cayenne. Stir.  Add chicken and cook for a 3-5 minutes.  Add broth, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.  Add tomatoes, squash,kale, and simmer until veggies are tender and chicken is completely cooked.  Add cashew butter and stir into soup.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Garnish with a few cashew pieces, if you’d like!  Enjoy!
