Grandma’s Chicken Soup

More than just soul food

It seems that good old chicken soup is a great remedy for a cold! Research has shown that it can help clear congestion, improve hydration and nutritional status. Grandma was onto something. Who knew?!

So here is a great immune boosting soup recipe that tastes great.

1 2-3Kg chicken

1 pkt of chicken wings

3 large onions

1 large sweet potato

3 parsnips

2 turnips

12 large carrots

6 celery stems

1 bunch parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

Clean the chicken, put it in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil. Add the chicken wings, onions, sweet potatoe, carrots, parsnips and turnips. Boil for 1.5 hours.

Remove fat from the surface as it accumulates. Add the parsley and celery. Cook for another 45 minutes. Remove the chicken (it is not used further for the soup). Put the vegetables in a food processor until they are chopped finely, or pass through a strainer. Salt and pepper to taste.
