Fava Bean and Chicken Soup in serving bowlThis is my favourite chicken soup for the colder months. The fava beans soften and soak up all the flavours, almost mimicking a pasta of sorts. We call this the clean-up soup, too, because it uses up leftover chicken pieces, bones and just a few veggies.


Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 4 servings


  • leftover roast chicken scraps and bones
  • 1/2 cup soaked, dried fava beans
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/4 head of cauliflower, stem included
  • 1 turnip

  5. Clean and dice the remaining veggies. Add to the broth along with the drained fava beans. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer another hour. Add chicken pieces at the end. Garnish with parsley and lemon, if desired. Serve.
