Recipe Collection: Chicken Vegetable Soup

By | October 20, 2011

  **This post has been entered in Real Food Wednesdays at Kelly the Kitchen Kop!** This soup recipe is actually quite versatile.  It’s my standard “chicken vegetable” recipe, but I vary the vegetables a lot depending on what’s available or what I feel like having.  However you do it, it’s delicious!  My family generally likes Read More

Recipe Collection: Meatball Soup

This soup is a yummy, GAPS-friendly meal!  And if you have people in your home who don’t really care for soup (as we do), the meatballs themselves make a great meal too.  If you’re not on GAPS, feel free to add some beans to this too. Ingredients: 2 tbsp. olive oil 1 large onion, diced Read More

Stewing Hen Soup

By | December 30, 2010

Have you ever heard of a stewing hen?  I hadn’t, until a few weeks ago.  My farmer started offering them, so I asked him what they were.  Turns out they are the old laying hens that became too old to lay.  They’re different because most chickens are raised only for about 3 months before slaughter, Read More

Recipe Collection: Creamed Chicken and Rice

By | December 9, 2010

Creamed chicken is a wonderful comfort food.  With the temperatures getting colder, comfort food is in order!  I especially loved this one as a kid (from the frozen food section, then), so now I have created my own version.  Delicious, creamy, oh-so-satisfying. Ingredients: 1/4 c. onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 4 tbsp. butter 2 Read More

Recipe Collection: “Minestrone” with Chicken

By | November 18, 2010

**This post has been entered in Pennywise Platters Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet!** I say “minestone” in quotations like that because this is not a true minestone.  A traditional minestrone would contain pasta, and I don’t use it.  This makes it a lovely grain-free soup, generally suitable for those on GAPS or otherwise limiting carbs!  Read More

Recipe Collection: Vegetable Soup with Cheese Tortellini

By | April 1, 2010

Trying to come up with a vegetable soup that had plenty of flavor, wasn’t bitter, and didn’t rely on processed ingredients wasn’t easy. I spent many days eating bitter, nearly flavorless soup before I hit on this one. The secret is the lemon and sugar (you could use a little raw honey, too)! (It can be made without the tortellini to be dairy-free and GAPS-friendly.) Since it’s vegetarian, it’s suitable for a Good Friday meal.
