Homemade chicken soup is a recipe that needs to be in everyone’s back pocket, especially as we head into flu season. Add a teaspoon of Miss Envy’s THC olive oil for the extra bit of relaxation. There are many variations of chicken soup, at Envy we like to add potatoes to our chicken soup, just like mom used to make it. We also included a vegan and gluten-free tofu ‘chicken’ noodle soup recipe below.
Homemade Chicken Soup
1 (3 pound) whole chicken
4 carrots, halved
4 stalks celery, halved
1 large onion, halved
2 cups potatoes, with skin, diced
1 cup whole wheat egg white noodles
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp oregano, dried
1/2 tsp basil, dried
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
parsley for garnish
1 teaspoon Miss Envy’s THC Olive oil per bowl (15mg THC)
Add Miss Envy’s THC Olive oil to each bowl based on the appropriate dose. We always recommend starting with a low dose and slowly increasing. One teaspoon is 15mg THC. Check out our measurement guide for the most accurate measuring of all Miss Envy products and please use responsibly.
INSTRUCTIONS for Homemade chicken soup
- Put the chicken, carrots, celery, potatoes, and onion in a large soup pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered until the chicken meat falls off the bones about 30 minutes (skim off foam every so often).
- Take everything out of the pot. Strain the broth. Pick the meat off of the bones and chop the carrots, celery, and onion. Season the broth with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and chicken bouillon to taste.
- Return the chicken, carrots, celery, and onion to the pot and stir together.
- Stir in pasta noodles of your choice.
- Add Miss Envy’s THC olive oil to each bowl, garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
Tofu ‘Chicken’ Noodle Soup
1 block extra firm tofu
1 Tbsp gluten-free low sodium tamari or soy sauce
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried oregano
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups carrots, peeled and chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 medium white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
4 cups water
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt (omit if using full sodium vegetable broth)
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
2-3 cups brown rice rotini pasta, dry (or any other pasta of choice)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
chili flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon Miss Envy’s THC olive oil per bowl
- Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to press out any excess moisture from the block of tofu. Then, cut the tofu into small cubes.
- Add the tofu pieces to a bowl with tamari / soy sauce, thyme, and oregano, and toss until tofu is evenly coated. Spread onto the lined baking sheet in one layer and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, toss, and bake for another 15 minutes. (While the tofu is in the oven for the first 15 minutes, we recommend prepping the vegetables and measuring spices. After placing the tofu back in the oven halfway through baking, it’s time to get started on the soup!)
- To a large pot, add olive oil, carrots, celery and onion, and sauté over medium heat for approximately 8 minutes, or until soft but not brown. Add the minced garlic for the last minute of cooking. Stir frequently, and reduce heat if at any point the mixture starts to brown.
- Add vegetable broth, water, thyme, pepper, and salt to the pot, and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Uncover and add nutritional yeast, rotini pasta, and baked tofu. Bring back to a gentle boil and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, or until pasta is tender.
- Remove from heat and stir in the finely chopped fresh parsley. Adjust salt and pepper, and Miss Envy’s olive oil as well as chili flakes, if desired.
