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 @kettleandfire)
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
HOW TO MAKE
-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!
