Chicken and Mediterranean Vegetable Soup

I love a good soup and I love it even more if I through something together and it turns out great and this soup is just that – so today I am sharing my Chicken and Mediterranean Vegetable Soup .

This soup is great for making on a Monday if you have had a Roast chicken the day before.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint of chicken stock – I pre-made mine with a leftover roast chicken on Sunday but you can use cubes.
  • Left over Chicken – shredded
  • 1 red onion chopped 
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed  
  • 1 cup of Passata
  • Olive oil – 1 tsp
  • Chopped Courgettes, cherry tomatoes, and Aubergine – I used a mixed bag of frozen veg from Supervalu for €2.00
  • I aslo threw in chopped up left over roast potatoes to thicken it up ( optional ) 

THE HOW TO BIT  

  1. In a pot sweat the onion and the garlic in a little Olive oil. 
  2. Add the Mediterranean Veg and stir until softened.
  3. Add in the Chicken, Chicken stock, Passata and potatoes and bring to the boil.
  4. Turn down and simmer for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked. 

To bulk this up you could add in some wholewheat pasta and,of course,serve with crusty bread.
