Chicken Veggie Soup

Since I just showed you how to make a big pot of broth, I thought I’d tell you a recipe that uses all of that crock pot worth. This is a very light soup and is great a day after a huge feast like Thanksgiving or when your sick and not wanting a heavy meal.

Eventually as you become comfortable homesteading, you will be using everything you’ve grown, raised, and made to do this recipe except mushrooms and oil. You can grow mushrooms but I haven’t had success yet 😦  You can also substitute turkey in this.

Chicken Vegetable Soup

2 tsp Olive Oil

2 c. Cooked Chicken

2 c. Chopped Cabbage

2 c. Sliced Mushrooms

1 diced onion

1 tsp chopped garlic

1 tsp basil

1 tsp black pepper

8 c. Chicken broth

In a sauce pan saute cabbage, onion, garlic, chicken, mushrooms in olive oil until cabbage is soft. Add basil and pepper, cook 2-3 minutes. Add chicken broth and simmer.

( A lot of times I will put all this in the crockpot and then put on low for 2-3 hours instead of simmering on the stove…did I mention I love my crock pot? 🙂  )
