I have been experimenting with soup recipes for a while now. Here is a super simple, super healthy recipe for you guys! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small potato
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or parsley
  • 5 cups chopped carrots
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cups reduced-chicken broth
  • 2 medium-sized chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Heat butter and oil in a deep pan over medium heat until the butter melts. Add onion until brownish. Add the carrots and potato; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and thyme (or parsley); cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds.
  2. In another pan, boil the chicken breast (this water can be used as the water in the soup later on).
  3. Add the water and broth to the vegetables; bring to a lively simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook until very tender, about 20 minutes. Add the boiled chicken breast (cut into cubes).
  4. Puree the soup in batches in a blender until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Stir in half-and-half (if using), salt and pepper.
  5. Serve hot! And enjoy 😀

  1. Nice video! =D I swear I’m too old to learn how to make a video for youtube. It would be so “cooking show style” if you had an assistant with you and then you show the last product for visual display purposes … sprinkle some paprika and a coriander leaf on it =p

    And ps: Taz ~~ do u blend the chicken as well? Personally I like having chicken chunks in my soup.

      Yes! Maybe if this takes off I will need to hire one 😛 haha, until then it will be amateur 😛

      And yes I blended the chicken as well. I prefer to have chunks when the soup is thin and runny but with a thicker soup (like this one) I prefer to just blend it all in 😀
