Not So Chicken...Chicken Soup

So the husband has food poisoning and I gave him chicken broth for dinner...I was suddenly inspired to concoct my own chicken soup...only thing is that I don't have any chicken!


2 tbsp EVOO
1/2 yellow onion
2 carrots
1/2 green and 1/2 yellow zucchini
1 c mushrooms
4 leaves of swiss chard
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cube chicken bullion
4 c chicken broth
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste


Roughly cut up all vegetables and then add (except the swiss chard) to a med/high heat pot filled with EVOO

Cook til carrots are almost done and then add the swiss chard

Once swiss chard has cooked down add all seasonings and bullion

Lastly add chicken broth and cook to almost a boil

**You could add some pre-cooked pasta or cooked rice for some starch or just have a nice chunk of bread along side**
