clean eats pick of the week | chicken & spring vegetable soup

ok, so this one doesn't sound like one to write home about, i know.  i was surprised.  it was TASTY.  there isn't anything creamy or thickening in this soup so it's pretty light but with all those veggies?  it's super filling & satisfying.  sam rated this one an 8 out of 10 which is pretty good for a guy & a veggie soup, amiright?  i mean let's be honest here, this isn't BBQ.  but it was a super veggie & nutrient packed fresh soup & i will definitely be making it again.

this is another recipe from emeals.  loving my emeals subscription!

--> 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast - cooked & either cut up or shredded
--> 1 tbsp olive oil
--> 3 small red potatoes, chopped
--> 3 medium carrots, peeled & chopped
--> 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
--> 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
--> 1 pound plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
--> 4 oz. snow peas, trimmed {i used sugar snap peas... still tasty!}
--> 2 tbsp sliced fresh basil
--> 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill {i used 1 tbsp dried dill}

--> heat olive oil in medium saucepan over medium heat.  add potatoes & carrots; cook, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are almost tender & slightly browned.
--> add garlic, cook 1 minute.
--> add broth & chicken; simmer over medium heat 10 minutes.
--> add tomatoes & snow peas; cook 5 minutes or until peas are tender.
--> stir in basil & dill before serving.

obviously some warm rolls would be pretty awesome with this but that kinda decreases the healthy-factor a bit.  i thought it was enough on its own... the only thing i had a hard time with was waiting for it to cool down enough to not burn my mouth while i scarfed it down!

enjoy & go eat something healthy!

  1. Looks delicious! I'll be making that this week. I'm loving all the recipe ideas you've been giving me. I lack cooking motivation right now. :)

  2. This looks great! I could easily make this with beans (I don't eat meat) instead and it would still be nutrient-packed. :D

  3. I am loving all of your clean eating recipes! I usually stick to plain and easy (read: boring), so it's great to hear how easy and yummy some of these dishes can be!

  4. Oh I'm so making this!! We've been eating clean since January now and are loving it. Always looking for new recipes thanks!!
