Coconut and Ginger Chicken Soup

Chicken soup

I love chicken soup it is not just for the soul but such an amazing all round nutritious and healing meal. Combine it with ginger and coconut, cooked in stock you are on to a real winner both in nutrients and taste! I also add turmeric, garlic and onion to this to further boost its immune boosting punch.

Ingredients

1tbs coconut oil

1 onion chopped

1-3 cloves of garlic chopped

1 Knuckle sized piece of ginger

1 Chicken breast (ours was left over meat from our roast chicken the night before)

2 cups of Cocnut Meat (from 2-3 coconuts) or 1-2 cans of coconut milk

1 litre of chicken stock (or any stock made from bones)

1tsp of turmeric

1 tsp cumin

1 sprig of rosemary (fresh or 1-2 tsp dried)

1-4 stems of thyme (fresh or 1-2 tsp dried)

1 good bunch of oregano (fresh or 1-2 tsp of dried)

Salt and Pepper.

In a big pan on a med-high heat add the coconut oil. Saute the onions, garlic and ginger in coconut oil. When softened add cooked chicken meat. Then add coconut meat and stock. Add the other ingredients and season to taste and allow to come to the boil and turn the heat down to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Use a hand held blender or add to a high speed blender to  make it nice and smooth. Season if necessary and serve.
