Super practical recipes from Coworking Gracia I: versatile chicken soup
We know you do not have time to cook and every morning when you arrive at your Coworking Gracia the same question: what will I eat today? From your shared workspace in Barcelona we propose an inexpensive, healthy, light, and nutritious dish, ideal to eat in the office. Impossible? Absolutely. We are talking about versatile chicken soup, very simple to prepare with complete and easy-to-buy ingredients and, as if this were not enough, it can solve your lunches throughout the week and even dinner. This is the first of two articles with practical Tupperware ideas to take to the office.
Cook one afternoon to eat a whole week
Batch cooking or “serial cooking” is increasingly present in the lives of those who want to take advantage of their time and who, although they love to eat and cook, cannot afford to go shopping or cooking very often In fact, there are many blogs that offer examples of weekly menus on a daily basis following this new way of facing the stove.
However, today we will focus more on the so-called “use food” and we will do culinary magic so that, from a single dish, you can get a lot of different recipes to enjoy in your Coworking Gracia.
We like this soup to eat in your shared office in Barcelona because it has healthy, accessible, nutritious and cheap ingredients. Include in your purchase a bone-in chicken breast, two or three carrots, half a kilo of potatoes, a zucchini, a leek and green beans (frozen ones are very practical and with them you will save time and money). Wash all the ingredients and cover them with water with a little salt. Once it starts to boil, lower the heat and let it cook for an hour and a half. If you have a speed cooker, this time will be greatly reduced. See how easy it is to make Coworking Gracia’s versatile chicken soup?
A soup, a thousand possibilities
A whole range of possibilities opens up from this chicken soup: strain the soup and you will have broth; grind some ingredients and you will get a wonderful vegetable puree; make a rice with the broth obtained and sauté it with the rest of the elements; make a chicken sandwich by adding lettuce and mayonnaise; Dress the green beans, carrots and chopped potatoes to delight yourself with a rich salad to which you can add the chicken in strips or a can of tuna …
And if that wasn’t enough, you can play with the exoticism of the spices and seasonings to turn your versatile Coworking Gracia chicken soup into a vegetable stir fry with teriyaki sauce, some rice noodles with curried chicken (boil the noodles in the broth to increase its flavor), a spicy cream of vegetables with the aroma of turmeric, miso soup … The possibilities are as varied as your culinary tastes.
