Soup season is HERE!!! There is something about the cool crisp breeze and a good bowl of soup… makes me feel warm inside. Another great thing about soup is you can basically throw whatever you have into a pot of soup and make it work. I encourage you to use what you have in the fridge/pantry to make this soup your own. I was inspired by a recipe I found in Fine Cooking Magazine, and decided to change a few things up based on what I was craving/what I had at home. Not even going to lie to you, I used a pre-chopped mirepoix mix (which is a pre-chopped onion, carrot & celery) because with an infant— ain’t nobody got time to chop every single veggie. Amiright? But I left them separate in the ingredients in case you’re feeling ambitious. I also boiled my chicken in Bonafide Provisions Organic Bone Broth and then shredded it. I added in some spinach for a fresh element, but if you’re not feeling it then you can leave it out. Here’s the recipe, take a look…
