4
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 medium carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
4 cups homemade chicken stock
1 medium red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, cut in half and thinly sliced
1 cup thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms, caps only, or substitute cremini or white button mushrooms; include the stems and thinly slice
1 cup chopped purple or green cabbage
1⁄2 cup chopped broccoli or cauliflower florets
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups cooked chicken, breast or thigh meat, cubed or shredded
1⁄8 cup apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and sauté, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are becoming soft.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté for another 3-5 minutes until fragrant. Watch carefully and stir frequently so the garlic does not brown.
  3. Add the chicken stock, red bell pepper, mushrooms, cabbage, broccoli or cauliflower, and salt. Reduce the heat to low, partially cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, honey, and the red chili pepper flakes. Stir and let simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve hot.
