Hemsley + Hemsley - Healthy & Delicious



This warm, healthy soup is the perfect dish for cool nights.


  • 1 tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil

  • 1 medium chicken or 6 large chicken thighs depending on size.

  • 3 large white onions, diced

  • 8 cloves of garlic, diced or crushed

  • 1 inch x 3 inch piece of ginger, finely diced or grated

  • 6 large carrots, chopped into medium-sized chunks

  • 3 large courgettes, chopped into medium-sized chunks

  • 1 large green or white cabbage, shredded

  • 2.5-3 litres of homemade chicken bone broth

  • 2 large pinches of white pepper (or black)

  • 2.5 tablespoons of tamari (a gluten-free soy sauce)

  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice


  • 1.

    Melt the ghee or coconut oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat and lightly brown the chicken thighs, skin side down. Because the chicken will be poached in broth, there’s no need to poach both sides.

  • 2.

    Remove the browned chicken and set aside.

  • 3.

    Add the onions, garlic and ginger and carrots to the pan with the meat juices. Lightly season with sea salt and pepper, and sautée for about 10 minutes.

  • 4.

    Place the chicken thighs back in the pan with the veg and add the chicken bone broth. Cover with the lid, bring to the boil and allow to simmer gently for about 20-30 minutes.

  • 5.

    Add your courgettes and cabbage to the pot. Follow this with the lemon juice and tamari. Replace the lid and allow everything to simmer for another 5 minutes.

  • 6.

    Dish everything out into individual bowls. If you like, you can also shred your chicken before you add it to your bowls.
