Curry Chicken Veggie Soup

Bringing you your daily dose of travel and adventure and sometimes some good stuff to eat!!!

Week # 3

A soup that sports all the colors of a brilliant autumn day, yet full of health and antioxidants. Another figure friendly recipe, that just gets better with time.
Servings: 8 Very generous helpingsp1000908

Ingredients
2 teaspoon organic olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
2 Tbs curry powder

1 Tablespoon Red Curry paste  ( I prefer  Thai Kitchen)
2 medium sweet potatoes (6  to 8 ounces each), peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
3 medium carrots, sliced or diced
1 small cauliflower, cut or broken into florets or 1 bag of frozen cauliflower
6 cups of  chicken or vegetable broth
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes

2 Cups cubed roasted chicken or turkey (leftover works great)
2 Cups of diced fresh baby spinach leaves

Liz’s Greek Yogurt Topping
1 cup nonfat greek  yogurt , 1 Tablespoon diced fresh cilantro and 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice, mix all together and use as a topping for this soup, tacos, burritos, chili, the possibilities are endless.
Directions
Place a large saucepan or soup pot over medium-high heat and wait 2 minutes. Add the oil and wait about 30 seconds, then add the onion, curry powder. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent and beginning to soften.
Stir in the sweet potatoes, carrots, and cauliflower, making sure they get completely coated with the curried onions, and sauté for another 3 minutes or so.
Stir in the chicken or vegetable broth, diced tomatoes and red curry paste,  bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, partially cover the pot, and cook gently for another 10 to 20 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender. Can add the chicken, if using, at this time. Add the spinach, give it a stir. The spinach will wilt within seconds.
Serve hot and garnish with Liz’s Greek Yogurt Topping

NOTE: I have made this soup many ways, a great backdrop for boneless, skinless chicken breast, leftover roasted chicken or turkey, baked tofu, seared lean steak and  shrimp, also works well on its own keeping it vegetarian.

Until next week Cheers from Just Around The Bend ♥liz-logo-1
