Southern french recovery soup

Southern french recovery soup

RECIPE
Vegetable chicken soup with rice

This soup is all about recovery, but that does not demean the preventative essentials of the ingredients. We first tasted this hearty combo while traveling through the south of France for a gymnastics competition in Marseilles. Our host family had it simmering when we arrived from our first double session of training that followed our over-night flight. It was the most amazing much needed bowl to the soul.

This soup can be made in a crock-pot or Le Creuset. Crock-pot recipe would be prepared the same but it is suggested to go a little lighter on the pre-cooking steps, and allow the simmering to occur over a longer period of time on low.
