Asian Chop Chicken Soup

I don’t know why or how I came up with this soup but I am so glad I did! The prep takes a little while if you do it by hand … If you have a food processor … Use it !

12 cups water
3 carrots, shredded
1 celery, shredded
1 fennel bulb, shredded
1 cup broccoli, shredded

- Bring water to rolling boil.
– Using the shredding blade, shred the carrots, celery, fennel, and broccoli. Set aside.

1/2 cabbage head, chopped
6 green onions, chopped
4 garlic, chopped
1/3 cilantro bunch, chopped
2 chicken breast, chopped
1/4 cup coconut aminos

- Using the metal chopping blade in food processor, chop each of the above separately … The chicken should look like ground chicken.

- Add the chicken to the boiling water, rabidly breaking up or it will clump into huge chunks … Not necessarily a bad thing but not what we are trying to accomplish.

- Cook the chicken for about 5 minutes and add all of the remaining ingredients at the same time.

- Adjust the salt to your liking… Cook for 15 minutes.

1 celery stalk
1 red onion

- Simmer for 2 hours or until stock has reduced 1/4 of the way.

- Freeze up to 6 months.
