Chick'n Chili Verde Soup

 You are all going to love my latest soup creation "Chick'n Chili Verde Soup".  It is absolutely delicious and can be served with some homemade wholegrain breadsticks (shown above), or some healthy tortilla chips crushed into the soup.  Also, don't forget your raw organic greens on the side.  I started this soup creation by using one piece (2.5 oz.) from the product Gardein Chick'n Scallopini. This is a plant-based product that you can find in the frozen section of your health food store. One piece has 2 grams of fat ,14 grams of protein, 30% of your iron needs and 2 grams of fiber. It was a very nice addition to this soup and adds some extra nutrition. I know you and your family are going to love this soup.

Chick'n Chili Verde Soup
Serves 4

1 Gardein Chick'n Scallopini Piece (chopped into cubes)
1 tsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 yellow onion (diced)
1 extra large or 2 smaller tomatillos
1/2 jalapeno pepper (chopped finely)
1/2 red bell pepper (diced)
1 Anaheim pepper (diced)
1 1/2 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
6 cups salt-free vegetable broth (Rapunzel salt-free bouillon)
2 small juiced limes or 1 large lemon
1/2 tsp. coriander
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. agave nectar
2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder (mix with small amount of cold water, then add some hot soup mixture, then add to soup.

1.)  Cut Chick'n piece into small squares.  Put 1 tsp. olive oil in soup pot and cook Chick'n pieces until slightly browned.  Add minced garlic, chopped onion, tomato and peppers.  Cook for 2 minutes stirring carefully.  Add in corn, 6 cups vegetable broth, agave and seasonings.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer.  Mix 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder with a little cold water.  Then add some hot soup mixture to the arrowroot powder before adding the entire mix to soup.  This will help to thicken the soup a bit. 

2.)  Enjoy with homemade bread sticks or crunchy tortilla strips.
