Hey hey …. you know it’s September and guess what that means?
Yup. It’s true!
And that meant I had to be a little more mindful of what I’m eating, how I’m eating and WHY I’m eating 😉
Not a big deal, said no one ever! A slight understatement, just for the record!
This idea came from Made It Love It Paleo … and of course, because the concept was so simple, I hopped right to the kitchen and made one just for kicks.
Yes, it was Day Two and a Tuesday morning. Cloudy, but still, already 85 degrees outside. At 7:30am.
I had leftover stuff from the holiday weekend. And because I was kind of on a No Spend Week, I was trying to use what I had on hand, yeah, even in the beginning stages of a Whole30 … and what the hell, leftover chicken was in the house and only 18 eggs left … so let’s do it!
Uhm, hello? It’s a keeper due to the simplicity of the whole thing! Again, it’s just the concept of the whole thing …
Here’s how I made my bowl of yumminess!
1 1/2 to 2 cups of stock/broth of choice, I used chicken this time around (Costco, organic, totally clean because you know some of them have yeast and other weird stuff in them right?)
veggie(s) of choice – I used leftover chopped onion, sliced mushrooms, sliced green onions and a handful of shredded coleslaw mix from a bag (all leftovers from Sunday)
cooked protein of choice – I used leftover chicken
Herbs of choice – I skipped as I was hungry …
Heat up your broth in a saucepan over medium high heat. You want the broth HOT!
Toss your ingredients of choice in a heat resistant bowl … use as much or as little as you like! I had a LOT in this bowl! This was the FIRST time I made it …
Once the broth is HOT, gently ladle 1 to 2 cups of broth over your ingredients. Allow to sit for 3 to 5 minutes to heat up the “body” ingredients and the broth will cool down enough for you to slurp. NOTE: I opted to put a plate over the top of the bowl to keep it steaming since I didn’t have as much broth as I wanted for the amount of veggies/protein in the bowl and let it sit while I did my makeup.
Sprinkle with your herb of choice and enjoy!
Now … obviously, this can be a super generous serving for one a smaller serving for 2 … I opted to make it just for me this time around but I’m like, wow, what a simple way to make a soup errr … broth bowl!
