Chicken Basil Peanut Soup
Wisk the following ingredients:
4 c. Hot chicken stock, salted to taste. Note: Use leftover baked chicken carcass in crockpot of water, garlic, and bay leaf overnight. Reserve 1 c. chicken meat.
1/2 c. Natural peanut butter – creamy or chunky. Option: Combine peanut butter and almond butter for another tasty variation.
2 tsp. Fresh minced garlic
Stir in the following ingredients:
1 c. Fresh shredded carrots
1 c. Diced cooked chicken
½ c. Fresh spinach or swiss chard cut into little strips
Garnish with the following ingredients:
Fresh cut basil (cut into thin strips)
Fresh sliced green onion
White pepper or hot sauce
Serve hot immediately or put into a crockpot or stovetop on low heat for a few minutes. I prefer not to cook it again because I like the nutrients of the raw veggies in the hot soup.
Have a beautiful rainy afternoon! Amy
