Chicken and Vegetable Couscous Soup
I’m always looking for one pot meals for those busy weeknights, when I don’t have much time for dinner and thus, don’t want to have a pile in the sink of dishes. For this easy Chicken and Vegetable Couscous Soup, you’re getting a lean protein source from the chicken, plenty of vitamins and nutrients from the carrots and spinach, and lots of flavor from the sauteed onions, garlic and celery with thyme.
The spiralized carrots add a heartiness to this soup, almost like a noodle soup (without the noodles!) Plus, spiralized carrots look pretty in a soup and is a nice change up from the traditionally diced or cubed carrot in soups! Spiralizing carrots is quick and easy, especially if you have an Inspiralizer.
Pearl couscous is actually a pasta, not a grain, and is a great way to add texture and consistency to a soup. It’s an Israeli pasta, developed in the 1950s apparently when rice was scarce!I love the Bob’s Red Mill brand, they make a tricolor pearl couscous that’s gorgeous!
Bonus points! When I fed this to my 16 month old, he loved the couscous – especially attempting to pick up each couscous pearl with his fingers!
How do you reheat soup?
- To reheat this soup, I recommend placing your desired portion in a pot over medium-high heat and bringing to a simmer until warmed through. For extra flavor, season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
