This is a great immune boosting soup due to the amino acid content from the chicken bones as well as the nutrients in the meat that assist in the immune system defence against pathogens and bacteria.

Chicken soups are rich in collagen, peptides, taurine and many nutrients that relieve inflammation, prevent colds and boost the immune system.

It must be mentioned that in order to maximise nutrients, superior ingredients need to be used for full benefits. Organic or at least hormone and antibiotic chicken free is recommended.


  • 1 whole chicken

  • 1 medium sized carrot – grated

  • 1 medium sized zucchini – grated

  • 1-2 broccoli stalks – grated

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar – this helps draw the amino acids from the bones

  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower rice

  • 1 knob ginger – grated

  • 1 knob turmeric – grated

  • 3-4 cloves garlic – finely chopped

  • 2-3 tbl bone broth – I like to use Gevity AM cleanse, however any is fine

  • 2 tbl Celtic or Himalayan salt

  • 4-8 cups filtered water – depending on size of pot


In a large sized pot (3-5L recommended), add all ingredients into the pot with the filtered water.

Cook on a low simmer for 3-4 hours.

Remove chicken and let cool whilst letting the soup still cook on low heat.

Shred chicken once cooled and add back to the pot. Discard the bones or pop into the freezer for a broth another day.

Cook for a further 1-2 hours on low.

Add fresh herbs and serve.

NOTE: This recipe can also be made in a slow cooker for 4-6 hours on low heat. Just remove chicken, shred and pop back in to cook further.
