After years of testing out the chicken soup of my childhood, and adding magic ingredients that are guaranteed to fight off the flu, I give you my own recipe. I usually have ready-chopped and prepped vegetables in my freezer to make this easier and less time-consuming.



  • Cinnamon stick
  • Bay leaves
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Turmeric (balanced with the same amount of black pepper)
  • Lemon
  • Diced vegetables of your choice (carrots, celery, courgettes, leeks, potatoes)
  • Boiled chicken
  • Chicken stock
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

How to make it

  1. Cook the ginger, garlic, and vegetables with olive oil in a pot (all the while, seasoning with salt and pepper). Then, add a bit of water on top.
  2. In another pot, boil the chicken with bay leaves and a cinnamon stick
  3. When the chicken is boiled, add it to the veggies with the cinnamon stick and bay leaves, and 2 cups of chicken stock
  4. Continue boiling until veggies and chicken are tender
  5. Right at the end, add 1 tsp of turmeric and 1 tsp of black pepper.

Mis & serve all the goodness into your family’s tummy!
