Chicken, Lemon and White Bean Soup (a video and a hug in a bowl)

There are times when you feel rotten and you need something to make you feel better. Maybe it’s a honking cold. Maybe it’s a hangover. Maybe it’s manflu. Or maybe it’s just the mean reds.

Whatever it is, I’m pretty sure this soup  can help.

Rather than leaning on noodles, matzo balls, rice, or a slice of buttered toast for comforting squish, here you’ll find white beans. There’s still blonde and soft, but a little less doughy. Also invited out to play are lemon, chilli, garlic, chicken – and just to gild the lily, some spindles of egg.

The video below of me making the soup was shot on location at Borough Market and in my kitchen in London. It was made by some very talented friends.

And the recipe? It’s just one of 30 terrific dinner options in a nifty ebook I know of that might help you escape the crutch of white carbohydrates for dinner.

Man can’t live on bread alone. Trust me. I’ve tried.

You can still buy the ebook for the bargain price of $2.99 here.

  1. What a fabulous post. I loved your video and the catchphrase “…a hug in a bowl.” Brilliant.

  2. Yummmo! This looks amazing (both the soup and the Dingo Bill production). Congrats Eat Tori Team!

  3. I love it! Great job!

  4. That was brilliant, cool to see you on screen after reading your blog for so long. And a good advert for your new knife 😉

  5. What a terrific video. The soup looks wonderful and I’m going to bookmark it for this week. My husband is going to have a bit of surgery tomorrow and I think something like this will be good for the recovery (nothing serious…hernia…shhhhh) I loved seeing glimpses of Burrough’s Market. We were there last year and I had such a wonderful time there.

  6. Awesome comfort food recipe 🙂 I love a good warm chicken soup when it gets chilly out!

  7. Love it Tori! You look fantastic (great top) and I like how the recipe is simple but still interesting. I’m such a fan of chilies in soup to really warm you through when you’re chilled to the bone with the flu. A touch of lemon to brighten the flavor is a great idea as well. Great job! I’m waiting for the book to go on Amazon to buy- keep us posted.

  8. Go Tori! I’m off to buy your book! 😀

  9. Great job Tori!! Your chopping action looked especially beautiful!
