Homemade chicken soup is a healthy and nutritious dinner loaded with vitamins, minerals, healthy carbs and complete proteins. Made from scratch using homemade chicken broth. Don’t forget to pin it!



46 cups chicken broth

4 medium-size potatoes

1 tin organic chickpeas (only use BPA free)

1 medium-size onion (any onion is fine)

23 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

3 medium-size tomatoes or use 1/2 tin of tinned diced tomatoes if in the hurry


  1. Put your chicken broth into a medium-size saucepan and turn on the stovetop.
  2. Peel and slice potatoes into thin half-moons, add them to the broth.
  3. Open and rinse the chickpeas and add them to the soup as well.
  4. Bring the soup to a gentle simmer.
  5. Meanwhile, peel tomatoes and dice them. (See notes if you need a tip on how to quickly peel tomatoes.)
  6. Peel and finely dice the onion. Add olive oil into a small frying pan and gently fry the onions, until soft. Approximately 4-5 minutes. Stir frequently you don’t want the onion to caramelise, they only have to soften.
  7. Add ground cumin and fry for another minute.
  8. Add tomatoes and onions to the soup. Add a couple of spoons of broth to the frying pan and mix to get all the flavour from the onions. Add to the soup.
  9. Simmer the soup for another couple of minutes. Check that potatoes are cooked and enjoy!


How to peel tomatoes in no time:

  1. Boil some water in a medium-size saucepan, take the saucepan from the stove.
  2. Put tomatoes into the water and let them sit there for a couple of minutes.
  3. Very carefully take them out and peel the tomatoes using a knife. The skin should come off very easily. 
  4. Done!
