Chicken soup

Everyone has their own chicken soup recipe.. mine varies every time, and this time is based on my wonderful home-grown turnips found today ;>

root vegetables, cubed (turnips, swedes, carrots, parsnips)

potatoes, cubed

zucchini, cubed

onion, diced

cooked chicken, shredded

cooked diced bacon

chicken stock (enough to cook however much is in the saucepan)

fresh herbs

salt & pepper

garlic

Put all together in a very large saucepan and cook slowly for 2 hours. Season with herbs, salt, pepper, and garlic to taste when liquid is warmed. You could also add instead of potato, pasta, or a soup mix of lentils and beans, celery, tomato, capsicum.. really anything you have left around that needs using up. Of course, it tastes much better with fresh home grown veggies ;>
