Avocado Chicken Soup {Gluten Free}

chicken avaocado soupI don’t care if it’s spring – soup is always good and wholesome regardless the weather situation outside. This dish was filling and bowl licking good. You may just have to enjoy two bowls of this gluten free soup goodness (because I sure did!).

The Greek yogurt and avocado really make the soup pop. They also added creaminess without the cheese. This soup is totally diet friendly. Absent of noodles, rice or carbie starches – it will leave you feeling full, but not stuffed and heavy.

You will need: 1 quart gluten free chicken broth, ¼ cup almond milk, 3 small baked and seasoned chicken breasts, 1 tbsp. cumin, 1 tbsp. chili powder, 1 tbsp. onion powder, 1 tbsp. garlic powder, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 tbsp. dried onions (or real if you have them handy), 2 tbsp. Greek yogurt and a pinch of salt and pepper. table

For soups, I feel like it’s all about the spices – so in this dish, you will find a medley of rich, yummy spices. First, pour your broth into a pot on the stove and let that simmer. Add in the almond milk for creaminess and stir.

Next, chop up your seasoned chicken (seasoned and baked before) and dump into the hot pot. Stir and slowly add in the spices: cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and dried and/or real onions.

Dump in the lovely canned tomatoes and stir up. Lastly, add in your Greek yogurt and salt and pepper. Let all the flavors sit for a while on the stovetop.

Serve with avocados and cheese on top, if you wish.

Yummy avocado sauce in the food processor!

Hopefully, you know how to make spaghetti noodles. Making gluten free ones is no different than regular. Let a cooking pot on the oven come to a boil and place the desired amount of gluten free noodles in the hot bowl. Let them cook. And strain when done.

Cool fact: my mom taught me this – you can throw a wet noodle against a wall and check to see if they are done. If the noodle sticks to the wall, you are done. If it falls to the ground, it needs more time in the pot.

You are going to make the avocado topping in the food processor. So, cut your avocados (take off the skin) and add the fleshy part to the processor. Add in the garlic, olive oil, basil, salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese. Blend this all up.

It may take a while for the avocados to fully mash up. You may need to stop the processor a few times and mix the avocado mixture around.

When the noodles are done, spoon out this mixture on top of them – and fold into the noodles just like any marinara or pesto sauce. Sprinkle more parmesan on top, if desired, and serve. This is a rich meal that will please a lot of parties. File this recipe away. You will use this more than you know. Quick, easy and healthy Avocado Alfredo {gluten free} Pasta! Dive in.
