Chicken Soup

It feels strange to make chicken soup without onions and garlic, but this low-FODMAP chicken soup is Chicken Soupdelicious! It’s actually one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast. You can make chicken soup a lot of different ways (obviously), but this time I chose to make it using a leftover roast chicken. I like roasting chickens in the oven to get the skin nice and crispy, and I eat all of the delicious pieces like the wings and back fresh out of the oven. But after it’s cooled off, the skin just doesn’t look as appetizing, and at that point the roast chicken is a prime candidate for soup! I also added powdered gelatin to the soup, because although the broth will already have a lot of gelatin from simmering for hours, I’m experimenting with adding additional gelatin to my diet for skin and hair health.

So you’ll just have to buy yourself a pork shoulder and see what it looks like for yourself! I’ll tell you what I did, and then what tweaks I would recommend to make it even better.

[Edit: I made this again and took my own suggestions (below), and it turned out great! So this is a legitimate recipe now, and not just me sharing my kitchen trials with you. But I decided to keep the original post too so you can see the (very short) evolution of the recipe. But I still forgot to take a picture of the finished product.]

Yellow Beef and Rice

This is my first recipe on the blog! I’m not sure it’s spectacular enough to satisfactorily fill such an honorable position, but I Yellow Beef and Ricethought it tasted pretty good. Plus, I created it myself, and usually that ends in disaster. And I even took a picture! And used a garnish! You know it’s a big day when I try to make my food look less ugly.

And in case you’re wondering, it’s called ‘Yellow’ Beef and Rice because the turmeric makes the oil highlighter-colored. The steps are probably a lot longer than they needed to be, because it’s a dead-simple recipe. If you can even call it a recipe. I’m actually kind of embarrassed to post this because it’s so simple, but I’m going to anyways!
