Warm & cozy healthy chicken pot pie soup loaded with chicken, veggies all in a rich creamy dairy free broth! It’s the best kind of comfort food that is gluten free and Whole30 approved.
If you love chicken pot pie than this soup is for you! The soup is rich and creamy but not over the top. It’s a healthy twist on chicken pot pie that is still comforting and filling. I love chicken pot pie and the buttery crust was my favorite part. When I decided to give the Whole30 diet a go I found it hard to find ways to make delicious food that was compliant with the diet. This is where this soup comes in! Its Whole30 approved where you still get to enjoy the delicious comfort food you love like chicken pot pie without sacrificing your taste buds.
I made this soup using roasted bone broth I already had in the refrigerator, the store bought chicken broth will do just fine. I added two scoops of collagen bone broth, because why not! Its added nutrients to your soup that doesn’t impact the flavour. If you have some on hand, add it in, otherwise this is really an optional step.
To get a creamy rich soup we went with pureed cashews or cauliflower blended with coconut cream or full fat coconut milk since these ingredients are dairy free and gives the soup its creamy finish. This step is definitely something I wouldn’t leave out.
If you’re a soup lover and love comfort food, give this soup a go!
