Sick Soup

You know that feeling before you get full-on sick? That lack of energy, a simple bump hurts more feeling, ugh it's the worst! Whenever I start feeling this way, I immediately make my Sick Soup. It’s full of fresh herbs known for their healing properties, and call me crazy, but I swear it helps!

2 Tbsp avocado oil (or Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

1 small white onion, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, minced

2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced into matchsticks

2 inch piece of turmeric, peeled and sliced into thin rounds

2 Tbsp of fresh rosemary, chopped

2 Tbsp of fresh thyme

2 Tbsp fresh oregano, chopped

2 star anise pods

4 cups water

2 (16oz) boxes of chicken bone broth (I use Kettle & Fire)

2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded

1 cup quinoa, uncooked

1 tsp sea salt, more to taste

1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, more to taste


-In a large Dutch oven or pot, heat oil over medium heat.

-Add onion and let it sweat for 3-5 minutes, until semi-translucent.

-Add garlic, and stir for 30 seconds so it doesn't burn.

-Add ginger, turmeric, celery, carrots, lemongrass, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and star anise. Let cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring periodically so it doesn’t burn.

-Add water, bone broth, chicken, quinoa, salt, and pepper.

-Bring water to a boil and reduce to low heat.

-Simmer on low heat for 1 hour, uncovered. Add more water if you want it soupier.

-Discard star anise pods, lemongrass, and any herb stems. Sometimes I leave these in, just don’t eat them.

-Ladle into bowls, and enjoy!
