Hearty Italian Chicken & Autumn Veggie Soup

Pinned 66,000 times

  • Chicken breast
  • Canola oil
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Garlic
  • Unsalted butter
  • Onion, finely diced
  • Carrots, peeled and finely diced
  • Parsnips, peeled and finely diced
  • Celery, finely diced
  • Butternut squash, peeled and diced into bite-size cubes
  • Italian seasoning
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Tomato paste
  • Hot chicken stock
  • A small piece of parmesan rind, optional
  • Tuscan kale, chopped into small pieces
  • Fresh basil leaves, julienned
  • Flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Gnocchi, cooked according to package instructions
  • Grated fresh parmesan, for garnish
  • Warm rustic bread on the side

1. Preheat oven to 200°C, and line a baking sheet with foil.

2. Place the split chicken breasts on the baking sheet, and drizzle them with a little oil, and a couple of good pinches of salt and pepper.

3. Cut the tops off of the heads of garlic, drizzle each head with a little oil, plus a pinch of salt and pepper, and wrap each head in a small piece of foil; place on the baking sheet next to the chicken.

4. Roast the chicken, along with the garlic, for 45 minutes; then allow both to cool until they can be handled.

5. Once they are cooled, shred the chicken, and set it aside; then, squeeze the roasted garlic from the papers, and using your knife or a fork, make the cloves into a paste; set the paste aside for a moment.

6. Place a medium-large pot over medium to medium-high heat, and drizzle in about two to three tablespoons of the oil, plus add in the tablespoon of butter; once melted together, add in the onion and allow it sweat for about three to four minutes, until translucent and softened.

7. To the onion add the roasted garlic “paste”, and stir it in to combine.

8. Next, add in the diced carrots, parsnips, celery and butternut squash and stir to combine; add in the Italian seasoning, plus a pinch or two of salt and black pepper, and the red pepper flakes, and stir to incorporate.

9. Add in the tomato paste and stir, and allow it to cook with the vegetables for about two to three minutes, or until the “raw” flavour of it is cooked out of it.

10. Next, add in the chicken stock and stir, followed by the piece of parmesan rind, if using; cover with a lid and simmer very gently on low for about 20 to 22 minutes, stirring occasionally (especially if you add the parmesan rind so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom), or until the veggies are tender.

11. Turn off the heat, and remove the parmesan rind, if using; add in the kale and stir to incorporate it, and allow it wilt into the soup for a few minutes; then, finish the soup by adding in the shredded chicken, the basil and the parsley (also, check your seasoning at this point to see if any additional salt/pepper is needed).

12. To serve, add about 1/4 cup or so of cooked gnocchi to your bowl, and ladle some of the stew over top; garnish with some grated parmesan, if desired, and serve with warm bread.


Roasted Cauliflower Soup Pinned 45,000 times

  • Cauliflower
  • Olive oil
  • Yellow onion, finely diced
  • Garlic, minced
  • Dried thyme
  • Vegetable or chicken broth
  • Milk, or half-and-half
  • White cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish, chopped
  • Bacon, cooked and crumbled

1. Preheat oven to 200°C then trim cauliflower into florets, discarding the stalk. Place cauliflower on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil. Roast cauliflower for 30 to 35 minutes until tender and golden along the edges.

2. Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining one tablespoon olive oil and diced onion. Cook four to five minutes, stirring often until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic and thyme then cook for one additional minute.

3. Add roasted cauliflower and broth to the pot, reserving a few small florets for garnish if desired. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly and breaking up any large chunks of cauliflower. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

4. Carefully ladle about half the soup into a blender and purée until smooth. Work in batches if necessary until the entire soup is pureed, but don’t fill the blender more than 1/3 full. Add puréed soup back into the pot and stir in milk. Add shredded cheese a handful at a time, stirring until completely melted before adding more.

5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with reserved roasted cauliflower, fresh parsley, bacon, and cheese. Enjoy


Autumn Chowder Pinned 29,000 times

  • Bacon, chopped
  • Onion, diced
  • Garlic cloves, minced
  • Chicken broth
  • Potatoes, diced
  • Carrots, sliced
  • Milk
  • Frozen corn
  • Pepper
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: parsley, chopped

1. Cook bacon over medium to medium-high heat, until just crisp (don’t overcook). Remove bacon and put on a plate that’s covered with paper towels (to absorb grease). If you want, wipe out some of the grease from the pot.

2. Then add onions and garlic to the same pot and cook over medium heat until softened, about three to four minutes.

3. Stir in chicken broth, cooked bacon, potatoes, and carrots. Put a lid on and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

4. Stir in milk, corn, and pepper and heat until simmering. Meanwhile, toss shredded cheese with flour in a bowl.

5. Take the pot off the heat. Slowly add cheese to soup, stirring constantly until cheese is melted.

6. Taste and season with salt and pepper, as desired. (Note: If your soup is too thick, you can add more milk or stock to thin it out and then warm through. Be sure to adjust seasoning accordingly.)

7. Serve warm. Top with a little chopped parsley for a colour and taste pop.
