Italian Beef is one of the best dishes on the planet. If you’ve never had one, get to Chicago right now and eat one. You will never be the same. I promise, you will crave it for life. I felt like Italian beef this week, but didn’t want to do what anyone would expect, so I transformed it to a soup. Its hearty, meaty, and its warm flavors are bold! Top with cheese or croutons for an added touch!

I love taking leftovers and creating new dishes or different takes on it. Last week I made a pork roast, but I had WAY too much meat left over. I loved the flavor, but wanted to do something just a little bit different. I decide to go with a soup. It has all the same classic flavors, but in a more warming and comforting way. Its delicious, nutritious and so easy you don’t even have to think about it. I hope you enjoy this take on the classic!

Chicken & Lentil Soup

This is the perfect time of year for some warm, hearty soup! I usually cater more towards spicy, cheesy, or tomato based soups, so I wanted to do something a little more low key, warm flavors, and earthy. Lentils has been my new thing lately and it has a ton of fiber and other great nutrients. Add, chard and chicken and you’ve got yourself a warm soup that’s perfect on cold nights. It truly comes across as a soup that helps comfort you when you have a cold. I hope you enjoy as much as I did!


Serving Size: 1 Cup | Servings: 8 | Calories per Servings: 85


โ‰ 6 3/4 Ounces Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

โ‰ 1 Cup Lentils

โ‰ 2 Cups Red Chard

โ‰ 1 Medium Yellow Onion

โ‰ 3 Cloves Garlic

โ‰ 4 Cups Chicken Stock

โ‰ 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk (Canned)

โ‰ 2 Cups Water

โ‰ Cumin


โ‰ Place the lentils in the bottom of the crockpot.

โ‰ Next, put the chicken breast over the lentils. Don’t dice the chicken. We’re going to shred it later.

โ‰ Roughly chop the chard, dice the onion and garlic cloves and throw into the pot.

โ‰ Pour in chicken stock, coconut milk, and water. Stir well.

โ‰ Put in as much cumin as you’d like. I put in about 3 tablespoons. Stir well.

โ‰ Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

โ‰ Take two forks and shred the chicken directly in the pot.

โ‰ Done! Store and enjoy all week or for a family gathering!

Classic Minestroneย 

There is something so wonderful about Minestrone. Its hard to know what its is exactly. Is it so healthy that is just feels so good to eat? Is it the fact that is it so rustic, going back to Italy’s most basic roots? Or is it the fact that Minestrone can be made so many ways with so many various ingredients? Some people add meat, some add bread, and others change up the veggies they have in the cupboard. In this delicious rendition of Minestrone, I try to go back to its most basic roman roots.
