In a Pot

Gee, that's such an unappetising photo! I hope you can see past it and imagine the yummy soup.

This is my all-in-one chicken and vegetable soup. I used to get hung up on cutting up everything the same size, sweating the onions/carrot/celery, etc, etc. (I'm completely over carrots in soup, too, by the way.) But now I'm into one in, all in.

As the weather is still quite mild in this neighbourhood, I think it's still OK for soup. So, just want you wanted, another soup recipe.

Not Another Chicken Soup Recipe

Makes about 10 serves

2 chicken breasts, cubed
1 onion
1/2 cauliflower
1 head of broccoli
3 potatoes
1/4 pumpkin
1 sweet potato*
2 corn cobs (cut off kernels)
1 litre chicken stock (I use the package stuff)
1 litre water

Cut up the vegetables. Peel nothing, 'cept the pumpkin! Don't make anything the right size. Just get it into the soup pot with the chopped chicken and pour in the stock and water.

Bring to a simmer and pop on the lid. My lid balances precariously on top of the mountain of vegetables. Don't worry, once everything cooks down a bit the lid will sit flush.

Cook until cooked. Then give everything a bit of a mush with the potato masher. Yum!

*I forgot sweet potato in this batch. I knew I forgot something!

yummy!
This looks like my kind of recipe. The ther chicken soup recipes all involve submerged carcasses and other complicated things that are beyond me, so I will definitely give this one a try.
