Therapeutic Recipies

Chicken Soup:

$10-$25 (depends whether you use organic ingredients or not, anyway:cheaper than therapy)


6 chicken thighs +legs
1 celery root
3 carrots
2 parsnips
1 turnip
2 potatoes
1/2 cup barley, some ramen or other noodles (optional)
3 celery stems
1 bunch of parsley
5 cups water

black pepper


Heat some oil in a large pot and simmer the chicken for a few minutes. Add water and salt, let boil while peeling and cutting vegetables. Take out the floating fat (kind of gross) with a spoon. Add celery root, carrots, parsnips, turnips and potatoes- all cut into small, but not tiny pieces. Let the soup boil for 10 minutes or so, then add celery stems and parsley without cutting them- you would want to take them out later. Add cumin, black pepper and probably some more salt. Take out some more floating fat, cover and boil on small flame for about half an hour. Come by and smell the soup, stir a bit, sing to it and take out some more of the fat every once in a while. If you're adding barley, this would be a good time to do so. Wait another 20 minutes after adding it. Remove the parsley and celery stems, add noodles prepared by their own instructions. 
Listen to music, find a book, magazine or friend to sit with you, clean your table and pour yourself a bowl of soup.
