I love this soup because it is an easy way to take in powerfully nutritious greens. While I love my green juices in theory, in reality, my stomach doesn’t always agree with them, especially when it’s cold outside. That’s when it’s time to make Green Chicken Soup. Somehow, the carrots and kale give the soup a delicious sweet flavor, which makes this high protein, gluten free soup very grounding, and even more comforting than it already is.

2 quarts chicken stock
1 bunch kale, chopped
3 carrots, sliced
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 cup shredded chicken (optional, though nice)


  1. Place chicken stock in a soup pot over medium heat, reserving 2 cups stock
  2. Take reserved stock and blend it with kale in a Vitamix, until smooth and creamy
  3. Pour kale-stock mixture into pot of chicken stock
  4. Add carrots and mushrooms (and shredded chicken if you have it)
  5. Cook for 30 minutes, or until carrots are tender
  6. Serve

    I sooo know what you mean about not wanting to drink green juice when it’s cold outside! However, I have found a trick to getting around that (useful for those of us who are raw/vegetarian and wouldn’t want to make soup, although the soup definitely looks yum to my vicarious eyes)…

    Place the bunches of kale and greens to be juiced in a big pot of warm (not hot) water, and let them warm up before juicing. The juice will be pleasantly body temperature, much easier to absorb, and not chilling!

    My favorite combination is dandilion, kale, cilantro, parsley juice.
