Food Excitement!!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — saturner @ 3:11 pm

Every once in awhile I come up with a recipe to try that I don’t anticipate being that delicious and it ends up coming out spectacular!!!!!! I have been making a ton of soups as I have discussed previously but although the soups have been yummy I’ve been finding that they start to taste similiar so I wanted to really bump it up and do something new. Last night I came up with a new soup called Creamy Herb Chicken Bean & Asparagus Soup!! It came out absolutely delicious and I hope you try it!!

Creamy Herb Chicken, Bean & Asparagus  Soup

Ingredients

2 Cans Cannellini Beans rinsed and drained

1/2 lb ground white meat chicken

1/2 bunch fresh asparagus cut into 2 inch pieces

2 Tbl fresh chives

2 Tbl Fresh parsley

2 Tbl Fresh thyme

2 shallots chopped

1 clove of garlic minced

2 cups reduced sodium chicken stock

t tbl extra virgin olive oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

In a stock pot use 1 tbl of olive oil and saute chopped shallots and garlic Thick, delicious and HEALTHY!!!until soft. Add 3/4 cup of the white beans and 1/2 cup of the chicken stock and let simmer about 5 minutes. Use an immersion blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add the remaining chicken stock, asparagus and beans and let simmer.

In a saute pan brown ground chicken. When brown add to soup. Let soup cook another 5-10 minutes and then add all fresh herbs, salt and pepper. I also add a bit of hot chili flakes at this point since I like a “kick” to my soups.

This soup will make about 3 large servings so if you want to make more double the ingredients.

I know you will love this soup!! Please try!!

Love, health and big food!!!!

  1. Your recipe looks yummy and healthy as well – definitely worth trying. I have really gotten into cooking my own beans lately rather than canned but sometimes convenience trumps all. Thank you for sharing!
