After a festive holiday season filled with parties and lavish dinners out on the town with friends and family, the New YearВ may have you craving a night in with some home cooking. Not only doesВ preparing a meal at homeВ save you money, but it also allows you to control the quality of the ingredients you use.
If you'reВ hoping to start 2019 off on the right foot with a few new healthy weeknight recipes, turn your attention to this nutritiousВ Thai chicken soup recipe from the kitchen of lifestyle blogger Camille Styles. Perfect for eating on a chilly winter's night, the soup combines theВ familiar warmth of a classic chicken noodle soup with the health benefits of gluten-free ingredients andВ a kick ofВ Thai flavours. Call it healthy comfort food.ВHannah Haston for Camille Styles
Aside from its healthy, flavorful ingredients, the best thing about this soup recipe might just be that it all comes together in a single pot. That means cleanup will be a cinch, so there's really no excuse not to put your cooking skills to the test and give the soup a try.
It calls for nutritious ingredients like mushrooms, okra, bok choy, and butternut squash. Although the recipe includes chicken drumsticks, Styles points out that you can easily omit the chicken for another protein like beans to make the dish vegetarian-friendly.Hannah Haston for Camille Styles
Unlike traditional chicken noodle soup, this recipe incorporates fresh flavors of lime, ginger, soy sauce, and cilantro while forgoing noodles of any kind. You'll be left with a warm bowl of delightfully zingy ingredients made for enjoying on a chilly weeknight.Hannah Haston for Camille Styles
Serve up the dish with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime. It's sure to become a regular in your weekly meal rotation. "That punch of chili and lime and cilantro is seriously addictive," according to Styles.
