Immune system boosting and sustainability go hand in hand in this delicious chicken soup, utilising things you might normally discard – roasted or store-bought bbq chicken bones and the pan (or bag juices) as well as bacon rind.
There is so much flavour in bacon fat and it helps with asimilating fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K which assist in keeping your immune check – perfect for the cold and flu season and colder months.
You might think twice about buying rindless bacon and letting this aromatic ingredient go to waste next time! Simply trim it off and freeze in a zip lock bag to add flavour to soups and casseroles).
For the veg, use whatever soup veg you have in the bottom of the fridge; potatoes, cauliflower, green beans, celery, fennel, onion, mushrooms and carrot work best!
Another tip? Leftovers are freezeable!
