Moroccan Chicken Soup

Diet - CKD, Dialysis, Diabetes

Recipe submitted by DaVita dietitian Laura from Nevada.

Portions:    6 servings

Serving size:   1-1/4 cups soup + 1/2 cup couscous
 Ingredients

    * 1 pound chicken legs, skinned
    * 6 cups water
    * 2 cups spaghetti squash, chopped
    * 1/3 cup garbanzo beans
    * 1 cup Mexican zucchini, chopped
    * 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
    * 1/2 teaspoon cumin
    * 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
    * 1 teaspoon black pepper
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 cup couscous, dry
    * 1-1/2 cups water

Preparation

   1. Place chicken legs and water in a covered soup pot and simmer until chicken is cooked thoroughly (approximately 1 hour).
   2. While chicken is cooking, prepare spaghetti squash. Cut squash in half and remove seeds. Place cut side down in a baking dish with 2 tablespoons water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 8 minutes until tender but still firm. Let squash cool 10 minutes; remove skin and cut squash into cubes. Measure 2 cups; reserve extra squash for use in other meals.
   3. Add spaghetti squash and garbanzo beans to soup pot with chicken. Simmer for 15 minutes.
   4. Add zucchini, cilantro and spices. Cook for another 15 minutes.
   5. To prepare couscous, boil 1-1/2 cups water. Remove from heat, add dry couscous and stir well. Cover pan and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving. Makes 3 cups.
   6. Serve soup over 1/2-cup prepared couscous.
