Leek, Smoked Chicken, Broad Bean and Savoy Soup
As the weather turns chilly, a bowl of warming soup can heat you from the inside. This recipe for Leek, Smoked Chicken, Broad Bean and Savoy Soup is so heartwarming and vibrant, very quick to make and extremely healthy too!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Cost: £5.40 (for four)
2 tbls olive oil
1 medium white onion finely chopped
1 garlic clove peeled and finely chopped
200g sliced leeks
100g shelled broad beans
100g shredded Savoy cabbage
1 Litre chicken stock
200g shredded smoked chicken
Salt and cracked black pepper
Small bunch of flat leaf parsley roughly chopped
Extra virgin olive oil
1 Small rustic loaf
- Over a low heat in a medium sized saucepan, fry the onion, garlic and leeks in the olive oil. Cook until soft, about 10 minutes
- Add the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Add the broad beans, Savoy cabbage and smoked chicken and cook for a further 5 minutes
- Season with salt and pepper. Serve in warmed bowls with extra virgin olive oil and bread
This works equally well with some left over home cooked ham or gammon in place of the smoked chicken.
