Kale, Chickpea and Chicken Soup

Posted by Ryan Shannon on

Chicken soup is a winter staple. There's no better way to warm up on a cold day, or to help ward off a cough or cold. This a nice hearty chicken soup with lots of layered flavours. 

For the Soup:
  • 1 cup dry Chick Peas --soaked overnight (or 1 can of chick peas rinsed and strained.)
  • 8 cups Pork Stock (can substitute Chicken or Veggie Stock)
  • 1 Cup Onion, diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Rosemary
  • 2-4 cups Kale, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked Chicken -shredded or cut into bite sized pieces.
  • Salt & fresh cracked Black Pepper, to taste
  • Chili Flakes (optional) 
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • ½ tsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 links Andouille Sausage - Cooked and sliced 
For the Rosemary Croutons:
  • ½ loaf Sourdough bread, sliced very thinly (sourdough bread is best for this recipe.. the "sourness" is actually really good with the soup)
