Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup or so of friendly fat to cook in butter, pastured tallow or lard, coconut oil, leftover pastured bacon grease
  • 2 medium onions
  • 6 medium carrots chopped
  • 6 medium celery stalks chopped
  • 5 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 quarts bone broth homemade preferable for more nutrients but use what you have
  • 2 cups cooked chicken I crockpot or oven roaster a couple whole chickens at a time and keep the meat chopped or shredded in the freezer to quickly pull out
  • 1 tsp all purpose seasoning
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne if you want more heat you can add more! You can leave it out if you wish but the slight heat is so good in the soup!
  • 6 medium zucchinis spirilized
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste generously season with sea salt if your bone broth was unseasoned

Instructions

  • Melt the friendly fat in your stockpot over medium heat, add the onion, carrot, and celery with a big pinch of sea salt and cook over medium heat slowly over about 10-15 minutes to bring out their juices and sweeten them. This is where that broth is going to get all of it's amazing flavor!
  • Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add the bone broth, chicken, and seasoning and bring to a simmer.
  • Add the spirilized zucchini and cook for about 3-5 minutes. It will seem like you need more liquid - do NOT add more! The zucchini will let off a lot of liquid once it cooks and the salt hits it. You can always add more broth if you want a brothier soup - but wait the few minutes to see how much liquid comes off the zucchini first!
