It's all about the food!
I spent the last week with a bad cold and didn't do a lot of healthy cooking. Toast...yeah, that's my go-to food when I am sick. Toast and jam, no sugar added jam of course.
Well, I am feeling much better today and was in the mood for some "real" food, but nothing too heavy. And of course, I didn't want to expend much energy either. What could be easier than whipping up some home made soup.
Chicken & Brown rice soup
6 cups chicken broth
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup corn kernels
1/4 cup drained and rinsed black beans
3/4 cup brown rice, cooked and rinsed
Salt & Pepper to taste
Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large pot. Add carrots, onion & celery.
Cook until carrots are tender. Add corn and black beans and simmer until they are heated.
Add cooked rice to the pot and simmer another few minutes to make sure all is heated through.
Serve and enjoy.
I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
