  • Im a big believer that food can be your medicine
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition I’m a big believer that food can be your medicine and that foods such as these are vital to support your health at this time. Those foods rich in Vitamin C, zinc, beta glucans, Vitamin D and other immune boosting nutrients. However, sometimes it can be tricky to pack it all in, which is why I have teamed up with  @melrosehealth  to talk about what we can do to boost our nutrient intake in the body and have our immune system firing for the cooler months ahead of us. Incorporating a powdered Vitamin C with all of the above nutrients

NOURISHING CHICKEN SOUP

WORDS + RECIPE : JODY VASSALLO 

“This is my talented friend Kelly and this books wonderful designer favourite recipe ever, I first made it for her a couple of years ago when she was poorly. She hasn’t stopped mentioning it since then, should have seen her joy when I sent her home with the whole pot after we photography it. I believe wholeheartedly that chicken soup is medicine, too many cultures around the world have a version of it for it not to be. It calms the body and soothes the worried mind, there is magic in the broth and nourishes as no other food can. Simmer it until the chicken falls away from the bone on its own, cook it for hours topping up the water as you. I never both removing all of the bones just the big ones my tongs can find, I like to chew on the bones as I find them because the marrow inside them is also very healing.”

1 organic chicken

1 cinnamon stick

3 star anise

4 cloves

6 black peppercorns

2 tablespoons coriander roots

6 spring onions

1 bulb garlic, halved

5 cm piece ginger, sliced

3 celery stalks, chopped

3 carrots, chopped

250 ml shaoxing (Chinese rice wine), optional

1 tablespoon tamari

300 g cauliflower, cut into florets

1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets

Put the chicken into a pan, add the spices, spring onions, garlic, ginger, celery, carrot, shaoxing, 4 litres water and cook over a medium heat for 3 hours or until the chicken is very soft and falling away from the bones. You may need to add more water during this time, just keep the chicken covered. Remove any large bones and discard.

Add the tamari and cauliflower and cook for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft. Add the broccolini and cook 5 minutes or until soft.

Serves 6-8
