Clean Eating Soup: Chicken, Spinach and Avocado In Spiced Broth

So this little soup happened one spring day.  It was cooler than normal, and I was in the mood to make something fresh and filling.  What came out was this clean soup filled with yummy goodness and it took 15 minutes to make. I KID YOU NOT!

All you do is chop, sauté, infuse broth and pour over spinach and avocado. If you are vegetarian, feel free to use vegetable broth and leave out the chicken.

Chicken, Spinach and Avocado In Spiced Broth

(for 4)

3 tbls extra virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 orange bell pepper, chopped
1 tsp salt (maybe less if using canned stock)
1 tsp cumin
1 quart chicken broth
1 cup shredded or cubed chicken, previously cooked
2 avocados
As much fresh spinach as possible

In a stock pot, sauté onion and bell pepper in olive oil for about 5 min over medium heat.  Salt while cooking vegetables.

Add your cumin and your broth.

Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 min uncovered. Add the chicken in to heat the meat.

Ok... the cooking part is done.  Seriously.

Account for about a half of avocado per person.  Note my avocado lover in the background.  He's coming for it.

Cube in and scoop with a spoon over your spinach piled high.

As in "as much can fit in your bowl."  This is practically a warm salad... but a soup.

Then pour your chicken/broth over your "salad."  The broth will eventually wilt the spinach and soften the avocado.  Sprinkle with sea salt.

Spectacular.  Clean.  Fresh.  Filling.  Guilt free.  Tastes awesome.  Does it get any better?!
