Mushroom and Spinach Chicken Soup

Traffic was backed up today on the drive home giving me plenty of time to think up this recipe.  I have been feeling a touch run down and the weather today was cold and rainy leaving me wanting soup.  I had made chicken stock last night but wanted to make the soup paleo which presented a challenge in thought.  Most if not all chicken based soups I have eaten or made contained lentils, orzo, rice, noodles, or some other kind of grain.  After a short phone call with the love of my life I had found inspiration and this simple and delicious soup was the result.  Ingredients follow:

Spinach Mushroom Chicken Soup

6-8 cups chicken stock
3-4 cups shredded chicken
6-8 oz sliced mushrooms
1/2 onion diced
3-4 garlic cloves minced
crushed red pepper
1-2 Tbs Olive Oil

Coat the bottom of a medium sized soup pot with olive oil and heat on low.  Add the sliced mushrooms, and diced onions and cook 5 to 8 minutes.  Add the minced garlic, chicken stock, and shredded chicken and heat through.  When heated through ladle the soup into serving bowls.  Add whole leaves of spinach to bowls and stir in.  Top with crushed red pepper to taste.


  1. This soup looks delicious! If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your Serving Bowls from? I've been looking for something almost exactly like this one to match my kitchen! Thanks!

  2. Thanks for commenting. The serving bowls came from Target, nothing special.
