This Hummus & Chicken Soup recipe is your new favourite thing.
If you haven’t tried putting hummus in your chicken soup, then you need to start doing it. This hummus and chicken soup recipe will show you how you can incorporate some hummus into your soup.
A stunning chicken and vegetable soup with the added bonus of a generous amount of hummus. Hummus makes for a creamy soup and has some stunning thickening qualities. Not only does it give the soup a beautiful texture, but it also brings some incredible health benefits.
With added protein and fibre, the chickpeas in the hummus also pack a punch of calcium and potassium. If you already have hummus in the fridge, then you can add your lovely home made hummus to the soup but this recipe also works with store bought hummus. Although we would highly recommend making your own hummus, as it is much lighter and creamier and you know exactly what is in there.
Now lets talk about the chicken. You can use a BBQ chicken from your local supermarket, or cook the chicken at home. If you are cooking at home, go for a boneless piece such as a breast. The chicken is going to bring a lot of tastiness to this soup so be sure to grab a decent piece or a well seasoned BBQ chook. Also you can season the chicken because the taste transfers well into the soup, so don’t be afraid to put some chicken seasoning in there.
You can choose any vegetables you like in this soup, depending on what you fancy and what you have in the fridge or freezer. We can recommend that capsicum and broccoli go really well here. The soup also has brown rice to give it that extra punch.
You will need the following ingredients for this recipe.
1 x BBQ chicken from the supermarket deli or 1 large chicken breast which has been seasoned, then cut into pieces and fried in olive oil
Half a cup of Hummus (home made preferred but store bought is ok)
1 Green Capsicum
1 Cup of Fresh Broccoli
1 Cup of Brown Rice (Cooked)
2 Cups of Chicken Broth
Put the chicken broth, brown rice and hummus into a large saucepan and mix together. Bring gently to the boil and add capsicum & broccoli. Simmer gently for 10 minutes until vegetables are cooked but firm. Don’t let them get floppy.
