Soup's On (#2): Slow Cooker, Super Healthy Chicken Soup

In the interest of eating well, I tried a new soup recipe on the weekend. I'd never bought kale before (which puts me behind the times) and along with the carrots, sweet potatoes, ginger and other pieces of goodness, this concoction is bound to make a body happy!
 It can't hurt!

I do feel rather pure.

It helps make up for the lemon and cranberry muffin I ate at a café yesterday.
Doesn't it?

As you can see, the chicken noodle soup is made in a slow cooker and yields 8 servings. In my case, that means assorted packets are in the freezer, ready to pull out now and again. (At least they'll keep the pumpkin soup company!)

If you'd like to see it, this recipe may be found at the Canadian Living website, here. There is even a brief video showing how it is made. Easy and delicious works for me!

If you have a favourite soup recipe that you have blogged about, you're invited to put a link on My Little Home and Garden's Facebook page. Let's all stay warm!

Thank you so much for visiting. 
I love receiving your comments and will catch up on replies and visits over the next couple of days.


  1. This sounds delicious, I like kale in soups. I may give it a try, I like soup in the freezer, it can be a Godsend. I also was thinking we may be a little closer to "Sunlit Sundays". ;-) xo

  2. Hi Karen,

    I have never bought kale,
    I'm not sure if we have it in shops here#bt
    but I do love to have soup in the freezer.

    Your recipes are inspiring me to take my slow cooker
    out of the very very back of the cupboard and
    to start using it!!!

    I hope you are having a good week.


  3. That looks great, Karen. I love the idea of leftover soups in the freezer. Makes life a lot simpler! Have a wonderful week!

  4. It looks delicious and it's almost supper time. I'll be opening a can of soup instead. ;( I need to make my own soup! Thanks for the link.

  5. I am glad someone is pure because I have been eating biscotti and drinking coffee this afternoon. The soup looks yummy.

  6. I love soup and could eat it for almost any meal. Kale is growing in my garden even now, and I was thinking of going out and getting some for dinner, but it's raining, so perhaps that will have to wait for another day.
    Your soup looks delicious - perfect for this extremely dark November day.

  7. Your soup looks delish! I also love Kale, but I've never had it in soup before. I'm going to have to try it.

  8. Another yummy soup recipe, perfect for these dull, dreary and damp days.

  9. That looks so good Karen, and I love kale. I eat it for a salad in place of romaine and it lasts a long time in the fridge.

    I love soups, they definitely are one of my favorite dishes, especially during the cold months. When I had a garden and orchard, I used to grow my own vegetables, and freeze them for soups. Yours look delicious!
