  • Hi my lovely ones  wondering if I can plant
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Hi my lovely ones - wondering if I can plant a seed for you before you launch into the weekend... do you reckon we can all come together and think about how we can be super extra resourceful with the bits and pieces left in the fridge before we do the next shop and refresh for the week ahead? Look at every little herb stem, veggie 'scrap', piece of roast veggie or miniscule amount of lentils or meat or WHATEVER and consider - how can I best make use of this? Because really we are SO PRIVILEGED to have these

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
