This recipe makes 5 cups
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup cauliflower (fresh or frozen), roughly chopped*
  • 1 cup broccoli florets (fresh or frozen), roughly chopped*
  • 1 cup baby carrots*
  • 1 quart low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans**
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional spices: 1 teaspoon dried basil, ½ teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (without skin)
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan (optional)
Preparation:

 

In a large pot, combine cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, chicken stock, stewed tomatoes, beans, garlic powder, bay leaves and optional spices. Cover pot and simmer on medium heat until soup comes to a boil.

Remove lid and simmer on medium-low until vegetables are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes (cooking time varies depending on whether you use fresh or frozen vegetables).

Remove bay leaves and add rotisserie chicken. Mix everything together and season to taste (add optional salt, pepper, and preferred spices, including basil, cumin and/or red pepper flakes). Ladle soup into bowls and serve each topped with 1 tablespoon of optional Parmesan.

*Can substitute any fresh or frozen vegetables

**Rinse beans in colander under running water to remove as much salt as possible, or use low-sodium beans. Can also use chickpeas, kidney beans, or black beans.

A serving is 1 cup.
