Simple Broth Bowls aka Fast Soup

Hey hey .... you know it's September and guess what that means?

was doing a September Whole30!

Yup. It's true!

And that meant I had to be a little more mindful of what I'm eating, how I'm eating and WHY I'm eating ;-)


Not a big deal, said no one ever! A slight understatement, just for the record!

Anyway.

This idea came from Made It Love It Paleo ... and of course, because the concept was so simple, I hopped right to the kitchen and made one just for kicks.

Yes, it was Day Two and a Tuesday morning. Cloudy, but still, already 85 degrees outside.  At 7:30am.

BUT

I had leftover stuff from the holiday weekend.  And because I was kind of on a No Spend Week, I was trying to use what I had on hand, yeah, even in the beginning stages of a Whole30 ...  and what the hell, leftover chicken was in the house and only 18 eggs left ... so let's do it!

Uhm, hello? It's a keeper due to the simplicity of the whole thing!  Again, it's just the concept of the whole thing ...

Ready?

Here's how I made my bowl of yumminess!

1 1/2 to 2 cups of stock/broth of choice, I used chicken this time around (Costco, organic, totally clean because you know some of them have yeast and other weird stuff in them right?)
veggie(s) of choice - I used leftover chopped onion, sliced mushrooms, sliced green onions  and a handful of shredded coleslaw mix from a bag (all leftovers from Sunday)
cooked protein of choice - I used leftover chicken
Herbs of choice - I skipped as I was hungry ...

Heat up your broth in a saucepan over medium high heat. You want the broth HOT!

 

Toss your ingredients of choice in a heat resistant bowl ... use as much or as little as you like! I had a LOT in this bowl!  This was the FIRST time I made it ...


Once the broth is HOT, gently ladle 1 to 2 cups of broth over your ingredients.  Allow to sit for 3 to 5 minutes to heat up the "body" ingredients and the broth will cool down enough for you to slurp. NOTE: I opted to put a plate over the top of the bowl to keep it steaming since I didn't have as much broth as I wanted for the amount of veggies/protein in the bowl and let it sit while I did my makeup.

Sprinkle with your herb of choice and enjoy!

Now ... obviously, this can be a super generous serving for one a smaller serving for 2 ... I opted to make it just for me this time around but I'm like, wow, what a simple way to make a soup errr ... broth bowl!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
