My family is just in love with this soup. We’re not talkin’ your mother’s high-in-carbs chicken noodle soup here, we’re talkin’ nutrient-dense, hearty, spoon-lickin’ yummy Chicken Nettle Soup.

This was my first attempt at using a tonic herb in an everyday recipe and it’s since morphed into a family favorite that we have nearly every week during the winter months. The best part is, it’s easy-peasy.

Now that spring has come, it’s still important to fill our stomachs with wholesome immune-boosting foods like bone broth, nourishing vegetables and herbs like Nettle, carrots, onions and garlic. Because, let’s face it, the only thing worse than a winter cold is a spring one. So here’s to your health… and a spring full of new life and vitality!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Chicken Nettle Soup
Serves 8
A nutrient-dense, hearty, spoon-lickin' yummy soup.
