A Soup to Savor

Once you’ve tried this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Chunky Chicken Soup, you’ll find out how much easier and better-tasting homemade chicken soup can be. Our version also contains whole grains, carrots, onions and parsley — all foods that are part of a cancer-fighting diet.

Buckwheat has no gluten and is used to make dishes ranging from kasha and pancakes in Western countries to soba noodles in Japan. If you’ve never tried it, its nutty taste is worth exploring.

The beta-carotene in carrots and the sulphur compounds in onions also give this soup phytochemical power. Parsley also contains beta-carotene, plus apigenin, another phytochemical that may protect against cancer.

Making your own soup also lets you control its salt (sodium) content. The reduced-sodium chicken broth and chicken breast let the delicious flavors of the other ingredients shine.
