    I sincerely hope you enjoy this soup and that it fits into your lifestyle. It is just as good without the meat too.

    2 Servings [as a side dish] or 1 Serving as a meal. Or, 4 sides or 2 main dishes if using 8C of stock.


    1C Mirepoix [1/2C diced onion, 1/4C diced carrots, 1/4C diced celery].

    5T chopped meat. [Ex. lamb, prosciutto, copa, bison, etc.] You can add more if you wan a meatier soup.

    4C Low sodium organic chicken stock. Add another 4C of stock if you want a less hearty soup.

    4 to 5 large leaves of any green. [EX. swiss chard, kale, or a bunch of escarole] cut into strips, then in half.

    2C chopped mushrooms. I like shiitake, but any will do.

    2T butter or olive oil.

    Salt and Pepper to taste. For a little heat, add  1/2t crushed red peppers.


    Add the butter or olive oil, meat, and the mirepoix to a medium stock pot and cook over medium low heat for 5 minutes, or until the onions are translucent, stirring often.

    Add the mushrooms, continue to cook and stir for another 3 minutes.

    Add the chicken stock and the chopped greens and stir.

    Keep it at a low Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring often.

    Season with salt and pepper to taste just prior to serving.

    Even better the next day so make a lot. Wink



    Ps. the chicken stock I use comes from chickens belonging to a friend and I know they live off the land [free range].
