Healthy and Healing Chicken Soup


Who doesn't love a good healing and hearty pot of chicken soup when it's cold out? Seeing as though we are in the midst of  snow-day season, cold & flu season, and sweater season, I thought I'd cook up a fresh pot of delicious chicken soup and share it with you guys. This recipe is super easy, gluten free, dairy free, and full of healing and nourishing veggies. Stay warm as you slurp up and enjoy this chicken soup!Ingredients:4 quarts chicken stockavocado oil1 whole white onion - chopped1 bunch green onion - chopped2 TBS chopped and peeled garlic cloved2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs4 carrots peeled and chopped1 whole celery root - peeled and choppedcajun seasoning2 bay leaves For Garnish (optional) Avocado SlicesParsley What to do:In a large pot, brown chicken in avocado oil and cajun seasoning (just enough to coat the chicken). Add in all veggies and sauté until onions are clear. Add in chicken stock and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer. Simmer until carrots are soft - the longer you can let it cook the better!
