March has definitely came in like a lion in the Loeffelman household. Asher’s had his first nasty cold of the season and I’m hoping the rest of us aren’t soon to follow. Germs. Mehhhh. Anyway, I thought I’d share this tasty little preschooler approved soup recipe with you guys. RECIPE – (this recipe serves 4, double if needing more)
1 chicken breast (on the larger side)
2 boxes chicken stock
6 carrots – diced
1 small bag of thawed frozen peas (you can substitute 1/2 cup of other green veggies or even add them in as well!)
few pinches of fresh parsley
1 tsp ginger root powder (this gives the soup a little zing – leave out if ya got a picky eater)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
pinch of kosher salt/pepper
1/2 – 1 c. noodles – Asher likes the bow-tie!
In a larger pot pour chicken stock and place whole breast in to cook. Add carrots and seasonings and simmer until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken breast from pot and cut into small pieces on a cutting board. Return to pot and add noodles and peas. Simmer until carrots are soft and noodles are al dente. Let cool and serve!
-go light on the seasonings if your child isn’t familiar with them
-make a large pot of soup, divide into containers + freeze for a later date. I always like to have some frozen as a backup incase someone gets sick!
