On Saturday my neighbor hosted a Essential Oil Make-n-Take Class for me. It was so much fun and we made three DIY recipes using essential oils. But if I am honest this soup here STOLE the show. Literally. My host made this soup to serve the guests and along with a Sangria all of us went back for seconds and maybe thirds…. We were still talking about the soup while we were making our homemade Thieves Cleaning Wipes, Room Spray and Foaming Hand Soap!
The soup was essential oil infused using Basil, Lemongrass and Ginger essential oils from Young Living’s Vitality Line. Young Living’s Vitality line of essential oils are specifically labeled for dietary use! Go here to see the entire line up and details. Below is the soup recipe. Try it for yourself and I dare you to not go for seconds!!
Coconut Milk Chicken Soup
- 4 Cups Chicken Broth (she made her own using a chicken thigh but I am sure the packaged kind would work too)
- 1-2 Large Yellow Onions, sliced
- 3-4 Large Carrot, diced
- 3-4 Celery Stalks, diced
- 2 Potatoes, diced
- 1 Whole Cooked Chicken Breast, diced or shredded
- 1 Carton (not can. Carton is creamier) 15 oz. Coconut Milk. You may double this amount if you want richer broth
- 1-2 Tbsp. Asian Fish Sauce
- 1-2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1 Small Zucchini, halved and sliced
- 1/2 – 1 tsp. Salt (optional)
- 1-2 drops Young Living Basil Vitality Essential Oil
- 1-2 drops Young Living Lemongrass Vitality Essential Oil
- 1 drop Young Living Ginger Vitality Essential Oil
In a large soup pot, simmer chicken broth. Add onions, carrots, celery and potato; simmer 2 minutes. Add chicken and simmer an additional 5 minutes. Add coconut milk, fish sauce, lemon juice, zucchini and salt. Simmer another 5 minutes. Take off heat and add essential oils. Makes 6 servings.
