Making soup helps me to slow down. I love go- ing out in my garden and picking herbs to add into my soup. It’s impossible not to stop to smell the basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. I usually throw three to four herbs in the pot, regardless of what the recipe says. I feel like the herbs go in as friends, and by the time the soup is done, they’re family.
from choosing what you want to make, and getting it in a short time. Making soup teaches us a life lesson: decide what you want, do the work, reap the rewards. It teaches us to joy- fully anticipate the end result while being present in the moment.

Savor The Soulful Satisfaction Of This Soup
• 1 roasted chicken breast, chopped • 1 sweet onion, chopped
• 2 carrots chopped into bite-size
• 3 ribs of celery, chopped
• 1 medium zucchini, chopped • 1 - 2 bay leaves
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 teaspoon dried oregano or 3
teaspoons fresh oregano
• 1/2 teaspoon thyme
• 1/2 teaspoon basil
• 1 teaspoon rosemary
• 1 16-ounce package of gnocchi
• Salt and pepper to taste
Ingredients for spinach gremolata topping (separate bowl)
• 4 cups spinach
• Zest and juice of 1⁄2 a lemon
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 cloves minced garlic
• 1 cup grated manchego cheese
Put chopped chicken in a pot with all of the juices from the container it came in. Add enough water to cover the chicken, plus 6 cups. Add all the spices, veggies and bay leaf
in the pot, (everything except the gnocchi). Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the gnocchi and simmer uncovered, until the gnocchi floats to the top — about 5 minutes. Remove and throw the bay leaf away. Mix all the gremolata ingredients together in a large bowl. Place a healthy amount of gremolata over the hot soup.
 There is something so satisfying about soup that nourishes our mind, body and spirit. A pot full of ingredi- ents that synergistically improves as it simmers; the rich aroma that wafts through the house and the neighbor- hood. It’s pure comfort. Why?
Here is one of my most favorite soup recipes. The gremolata is a topping you add after serving the soup. It creates a scrumptious surprise that makes your taste buds do a happy dance.
Maybe the satisfaction comes
