1. In a large saucepan, fry 1 large chopped onion in 1 tablespoon. Olive oil over medium to tender. Add 4 cloves of chopped garlic, 10 cups of low-sodium chicken stock, and 2 skinless bone-in chicken halves. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes.
2. Add 1 large chopped fennel bulb, 4 medium sliced carrots, 4 sliced celery, 1 1/3 cup pearl couscous (Israeli) and 2 teaspoons. Curry powder. Simmer for 10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the couscous is tender. Remove the chicken from the soup and chop the meat off the bone when it is cool enough. Add soup along with 4 cups of baby spinach, 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, 2 tsp. kosher salt.
3. Serve half of the soup with freshly ground black pepper.
Eat it again!
4. Pour the remaining soup into an airtight container and freeze for up to three months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then heat on the stove or in the microwave.
- Tip: Replace the curry powder with 1 teaspoon of ground cumin for a different taste.
- Store intelligently: Freeze the second batch of soup instead of refrigerating it so the couscous doesn’t absorb too much liquid and become mushy.
