If there’s ever a soup that we crave on a daily basis or when we need a simple starter for a gathering, it is this 30 minute chicken vegetable soup. It’s loaded with all the veggie-good stuff, including plenty of greens and rich flavor from the soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce.

This chicken vegetable soup recipe was made over 3 years ago when we had our ambitious idea of publishing our own little food magazine. Although put the idea on the back burner now, we ended up with thirty zucchini recipes. The whole project wasn’t a waste because we learned so much during the process and  spent two months eating more zucchini than most people eat in a lifetime!

Our chicken soup recipe definitely has evolved since then. We’ve added more spinach to make it more greens-focused. There’s so many different possibilities with this soup and adding kale is just one fantastic example of incorporating more healthy greens.

Low Carb and Flavorful Chicken Vegetable Soup

A bowl of this comforting soup keep us warm and reminds us that we better get back on track soon if this magazine of ours is ever going to become a reality! Oh so many projects, so little time. In the meantime, what we got out of our research project was this fantastic chicken soup recipe. It’s our go-to comforting soup all made within 30 minutes. The flavor and low carb nature of the soup makes it healthy. And if we ever want to make it more hearty, we’ll add a handful of rice or small pasta. Homemade food can be quick, hearty and wholesome.

Enjoy,
