Tip : roast a chicken and then after the meat has been carved keep the carcass for making the broth.

Use a free range or organic chicken (best nutrient value)

Turmeric can stain your thermomix lid. To clean yellow stains the tips are to clean with lemon juice or leave outside in the sunshine for at least 6 hours. Brushing the lid with oil will also halp to avoid staining.

Soup will last for 3 days. It is also freezer friendly.

If you have a cold or "flu-like" covid symptoms then chicken broth is a excellent therapeutic way to have regularly (especially if appetite is less). You can also add the broth to other recipes for extra goodness and replace for liquid in stews, soups or casseroles.

The amino acids help inflammation, and respiratory symptoms. The soup is good for the soul and is calming on the digestive system and the gut. This is a short cooking time which overall reduces histamine levels (which can be an issue for some individuals) If you are histamine intolerant then reduce the cooking time to 60 minutes

You can buy the blade cover / potato peeler from The Mix Shop - don't forget to add the name of your consultant when you check out.
