    Almost Instant Chicken Soup - Lunch for One - Waste Not Want Not

    I can never throw away any chicken bones or scraps. It makes the best stock and such a good base for so many things
    So in the fridge, was a lovely jelly like jar of stock, complete with some chicken fat, good for that extra flavour
    My mission... to turn this lovely stock into a almost instant lunch for one,
    For that extra seasoning, I added some Vegeta Powdered Stock
    Such a good product
    Slosh of olive oil
    Take 1 onion peeled and sliced
    1 red pepper, de-seeded and rough chopped
    1 stick celery finely sliced
    1/2 small carrot grated
    1 tablespoon chopped red chili
    1 teaspoon grated ginger
    2 teaspoons Vegeta 
    2 cups chicken Stock
    2 teaspoons coconut sugar
    juice of 1/2 small lemon or lime

    Into a saucepan add olive oil over med heat
    Add onions saute till softened a little 3-4 months
    Add pepper, celery, carrot, chili and grate the ginger into the mix
    when the vege soften add the Vegeta Stock powder

    Add Chicken Stock...Bring to boil 
    Not for long though
    5-7 minutes will be enough
    Add the coconut sugar and the lemon or lime juice, just to balance the flavour

    Lunch is served
    Delicious and healthy whats more
    If you have some coriander, (I didn't)...a few sprigs would be a welcome addition
