I love walking through a fall forest, even when our west coast November rain is pouring down and the trees are shrouded in mist. Actually I sometimes love it even more because the forest leaves are glistening with dewy rain drops and transformed into a mysterious, enchanted forest.
An afternoon spent in this kind of weather, however, calls for a big bowl of warming and soul soothing chicken soup.
I happen to have an easy and tasty recipe for our cold, snowy and, in Vancouver, damp Canadian winter. It’s not fully home-made (packaged chicken broth instead of bone broth) but close enough and is 100 percent comfort food.
Soul Soothing Easy Chicken Soup
- one package organic vegetable or chicken broth
- one chicken breast, sauteed and cubed
- 1/4 head cauliflower
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 2 red peppers
- handful cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 onion
- 2 carrots, thinly sliced
- cubed tofu, optional (I like this to add extra protein)
Bring to a boil in saucepan, then simmer for about 15 minutes.
