My Grandmother's Old Fashioned Chicken Soup

Makes 4 servings

This soup works great for dinner, snack and thermos lunches! For a richer soup, feel free to add sweet potato to the mix. In my house, my kids love to add different shaped pastas to it. The final product will stay fresh for four days and can be kept in the freezer if needed.

2 medium sweet potatoes
1/2 onion, peeled and sliced thinly
1 whole chicken
3-5 whole garlic cloves, peeled
4 cups spinach or kale leaves, or broccoli
4 carrots
4 stalks of celery
2 stalks turnips
A handful of fresh dill
2 low sodium chicken bouillon cubes
2 teaspoons of turmeric
Two ounces of fresh ginger, grated

1. Throw all ingredients into a pot of water.
2. Skim any fat off the top.
3. Bring to a boil and allow it to cook for a minimum of two hours.
