In the past, I’ve added jasmine rice to this healthy chicken soup (which will slightly thicken the broth a bit and add a nice depth of flavor). I’ve also added buckwheat noodles. But my favorite is to add a generous heaping of cauliflower rice to the bottom of my bowl, then ladle the piping hot soup over the top and toss in a fistful of daikon sprouts for good measure.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH SOUP

Serving soup with a big tossed salad nicely rounds out a meal.  You could serve this soup with either this Crunchy Detox SaladEveryday Detox Salad, or this simple Spinach Berry Antioxidant Salad.
