composter). I was able to use up some turnips, romanesco, and swiss chard.
This is really just a basic chicken soup. I was a little lazy. I had made chicken the night before and saved all the bones. Cooked up some onion, carrot, celery and garlic in a little bit of olive oil. In a separate pan I sauteed the raw chicken parts (from the chicken the night before-neck, gizzard etc.). Added them and the bones to the veggie mixture. Added water to fill the pot nicely. Tossed in some fresh thyme and parsley and let this simmer all day long.
Later during the day I added some chopped up turnip and to finish it off I added some romanesco, swiss chard, chopped up leftover chicken and a handful of Quinoa for good measure. Taste before serving to make sure there is enough salt and pepper. I added a bit of white pepper as I find this helps to brighten the soup.
This was a delicious make ahead meal that my family loves...
I served it with this bread...
Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day? No way. This bread though is super, super fast and works in a pinch. I will definitely make it again. From beginning to the oven it took me all of 5 minutes!
