Magic Soup Revealed

Magic Soup Recipe!
I love this soup. My kids love this soup. Everybody loves this soup. This soup is good for you. I make this with my leftover roasted chicken-I use the carcass to make the broth and the left over pickins off the carcass for the chicken in the soup

Make it soon…




5 cups Chicken Broth (preferably homemade but if not, low sodium)


1 medium Onion, Chopped (about 3/4 cup)
4-5 carrots, sliced 1/4″ thick
4-5 Celery Stalks, chopped 1/4″ thick
2 medium Parsnips, Sliced (about 2 cups)
1 medium Butternut Squash peeled and cubed


8 oz chicken meat, diced


3 Baby Bok Choy, quartered


1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped fine


1/4 tsp Kosher Salt (optional)

Fresh Ground Black Pepper (to taste)



Chop and Prep All Ingredients.
Heat Broth in large dutch oven or pot.
Add onion, carrots, celery, parsnips. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
Add butternut squash. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes more.
Add chicken, bok choy, salt and pepper. Simmer until bok choy softens, about 5 minutes.
Serve and sprinkle with fresh parsley (don’t skip the parsley part-trust me it’s worth it)

FOR KIDS YOU CAN ADD COOKED PASTA AND WATCH THEM EAT IT UP (Admittedly you might not want to not serve them the bok choy parts unless you chop it smaller it is scary for the young ones and somewhat fibrous)
