YUM!!!!! That sounds great and thanks for sharing it, need to try and make this sometime soon! When my dad had his digestion problems his specialist said that soup was very good for him as it was easier to digest and I know that he would have loved this! Thanks again for sharing it here.
Here is the soup that I made for my dad once I arrived here in Athens, Greece. My husband who trained as a chef came up with it. It is high in protein, easy to digest and low in fat.
1 large onion chopped or diced finely
3-4 cloves of garlic chopped finely
1 butternut squash or other yellow/orange squash diced small
4-6 carrots diced
4-6 zucchini sliced or chopped thick (at least 1/4 inch)
1 head broccoli cut into florets
2 bunches of chopped kale
2 cans garbanzo beans (low sodium)
2 liters chicken broth (low sodium)
1 pound of chicken ( thighs would be best), cut up into bite sized pieces
Put onion and garlic into a large pot with about 1/4 cup olive oil and about a teaspoon of salt. Sauté over medium heat until they turn translucent. Add carrots and butternut squash, sauté until slightly softened. Add zucchini and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add kale and broccoli, sauté for about 3 minutes or until slightly wilted. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the temperature to a simmer, then add the chopped chicken. Cook for about 15 minutes, add a little salt if necessary (use sparingly). To serve add some garbanzo beans and a squeeze of lemon.
