Boxing Day Soup

Spiced Carrot, Chickpea and Chicken Soup

At HelloFresh, we’re all about keeping food waste to a minimum so we didn’t want you to throw away the delicious ingredients you used to make your showstopping Christmas gravy. Therefore I’ve created this nourishing and hearty Boxing Day soup – delicious with warmed crusty bread. As the veg has already cooked for a couple of hours, it adds a delicious richness to the soup which means that it will also take no time at all to cook!

Method

  1. Carefully remove the chicken drumsticks from the mixture of chicken and veg you used to make the gravy. Pop them on a board (careful to make sure you get all the meat and bones out).
  2. Heat a drizzle of oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the curry powder, stir and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the veg mixture, the water (amount specified in the ingredient list) and chicken stock pot.
  3. Stir to dissolve the stock pot, bring to a simmer and simmer for 5 mins.
  4. Meanwhile, drain and rinse the chickpeas in a colander. Pull the chicken off the bone and shred apart into small pieces.
  5. Liquidise the veg mixture in a blender or using a stick blender. If you used a blender, pour the mixture back into your pan. Tip: Add a splash of water if you like your soup a bit thinner.
  6. Add the chickpeas and chicken, bring back to a simmer and simmer until everything is piping hot, 5 mins. Serve in bowls with a dollop of plain Greek yoghurt and some crusty bread. Enjoy!
