If I’m ever feeling a little poorly or like I have over indulged I always crave a big steaming bowl of chicken soup. It’s a dish I find so comforting and nourishing but light and cleansing at the same time. After getting caught in the rain without a brolly last week this Chicken, Turmeric & Goji Berry Soup is just what I needed to warm me from the inside out.
The Goji Berries I used in this recipe are from Creative Nature and are sourced from Ningxia province in China. Aside from tasting deliciously sweet Goji’s contain more Vitamin C than almost all other food sources, including oranges and have more Beta-Carotene than carrots.
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 cups water
1 small chicken breast
1 small grated carrot
¼ cup of cooked quinoa
Small handful of torn coriander
Small handful of Creative Nature goji berries
- Place your turmeric, ginger, chicken and water in a pan and on a medium heat bring to a simmer.
- Gently simmer for 10 – 15 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken breast) until the chicken is cooked through.
- Add your cooked quinoa, grated carrot and goji berries and heat through for a few minutes.
- Add your torn coriander just before serving.
