A comforting, nourishing and healing Everyday soup you will make on repeat during every season. 




  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 cups fresh finely chopped carrots
  • 1 cup basmati rice or grain of choice 
  • 6–8 cups chicken or veggie broth
  • Juice of 2-4 limes 
  • Fresh herbs for topping like mint, basil and / or cilantro
  • A splash of soy sauce or fish sauce 
  • Peanuts or cashews for topping (optional)



  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat and add garlic, ginger, and shallots. Sauté for 3-5 minutes
  • Add the chicken thighs and sprinkle with 1tsp salt and pepper, 2tsp Everyday spice and 1/2 tsp of turmeric for color
  • Cook the chicken undisturbed, for a few minutes. (Add 1/4 cup water to the pan to create a little steam if it’s getting too browned on the bottom) Flip and repeat until cooked through; Remove chicken and set aside
  • Add finely chopped carrots and 1/2 tsp salt to the pan and sauté for 5-8 minutes until soft then set aside
  • Add rice to the pot, 1tsp Everyday spice and sauté for 1-2 minutes
  • Add 6 cups broth and bring to a simmer
  • While the rice is cooking, cut or shred the chicken thighs into small bite sized pieces 
  • When the rice is soft, add chicken and carrots back to the pan and season with lime juice, soy sauce / fish sauce, and fresh herbs
  • Add 1/4 cup coconut milk and extra broth as needed and stir
  • Can garnish with peanuts or cashews for extra protein and crunch



  • You can make this without coconut milk 
  • You can add in more veggies like celery or spinach
  • If you want it spicy you can add in chopped green chili's or more red chili powder or paprika to the broth 
  • This can be vegetarian too just don't add chicken and use veggie broth
  • We love to simmer our soups for at least an hour to really get the best flavors if you have time otherwise this is done in 20 minutes!
