This is a basic veggie soup that you can add protien, carbs, fat or spices to as you like and count each as added. I like to make it and then put it in the freezer in indiviual glass containers. My favorite add ins are shrimp, avo and cilantro or green onion with a quarter of a lime squeezed on top. My children love this reciepe. The picture shows chicken, cilantro and avo added.

  • 12 c. chicken broth, organic, free-range
  • 2 c. onion, any type, organic
  • 1 can tomatoes, diced, canned, organic
  • 2 c. zucchini, fresh, organic
  • 1 black beans, canned, organic
  • 3 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. cumin powder, organic
  • 2 tbs. oregano, fresh, organic
  • 2 c. salsa, fresh made, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined and pure to taste
  • 1 c. carrot, fresh, organic

I make the organic chicken broth ahead and have it in the freezer . To defat the broth let it stand in the frig over night and then spoon the fat off the top the next day. I have made this reciepe with vegetable broth and it is still quite good. I like to add my fat in the form of avocado to this soup, but you could lightly saute the onions and garlic in a little olive oil first and then just add the fat portion to the serving amounts. Place the chicken broth in a large soup pan, add veggies, beans, spices. Simmer for 30 minutes then add the salsa. Taste and add salt as needed. Simmer a few more minutes to let flavors combine, serve or freeze.
