Chicken Soup. One of life’s great comfort foods. Tracy gives us a great variation of this classic soup as part of the 2016 recipe collection. Not only does it have kale but she used Better than Bouillon! Love that stuff!

  • 1/2 gallon vegetable broth
  • 1 full chicken breast cooked and cut into chunks
  • 2 teaspoons dill
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 3 leaves kale, chopped
  • 4 oz. spinach, sliced and diced
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced
  • 1 cup chopped Napa cabbage
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Better than Bouillon to taste


  • In a large soup pot, add broth and spices. Cook the chicken in the broth.
  • While that is cooking, sauté onions, garlic, carrots, and celery. Add the sautéed vegetables to the pot.
  • Add spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, and kale.
  • Add bouillon. Simmer for a few minutes until carrots yield to the fork poke and kale is somewhat softened but still bright green.

Good with feta cheese sprinkled on top.
