Tasty Tuesday: Foods to Freeze - Soup!

In preparation for the impending sleepless nights and minimal time allowance in the kitchen, we're prepping a series of frozen meals that we can pop out and prepare. First on the docket? Chicken soup - the perfect meal to get through the coldest weather in San Francisco (summer :o) ).

  • Organic chicken breast with skin no bone
  • 1 jabanero pepper (seeds removed)
  • 1 turnip
  • 1 celery root
  • 1 squash
  • Handful barley
  • 1 can organic white beans
To cook:
  • Cover chicken breast with water in a large pan
  • Add barley
  • Bring to boil - then, turn down to simmer
  • Add jabanero
  • After 5min, add turnip and celery root
  • After 5 more min, add squash and white beans
  • Simmer for 10 min
  • Take chicken out and remove skin and break up chicken
Let cool and freeze! I love this soup with pesto sauce. Sometimes we vary it and make it more Thai style (with bamboo shoots, fish oil, rice noodles, and no beans) - for now I'm making it "normal" style.
