Cold and flu season is upon us, some of my favorite ways to support immune health are soups and stews. This recipe in particular is very warming, nourishing, and easy to digest. Providing great nutrients to help support your optimal health.

Curry Chicken soup

1 Yam (large, diced)

2 cups Chickpeas (cooked, drained, and rinsed)

1 tsp Cumin (ground)

1 tbsp Curry Powder

2 Garlic (cloves, minced)

2 cups Organic Vegetable Broth (or any type of broth)

8 oz Chicken Breast

Add all ingredients except chicken breasts to the slow cooker and stir well to mix. Then lay the chicken on top and season them generously with sea salt and pepper. Cover with lid and cook on low setting overnight or for 6 to 8 hours.

After 6 to 8 hours, remove the lid and lift the chicken out onto a plate. Use a fork to shred the chicken breasts and add them back to the slow cooker. Stir well to mix and let sit for 15 minutes.
