This healthy slow-cooker recipe has nutritious greens, lean protein, and the immune supporting benefits of sea veggies. Each serving comes in just under 200 calories. Serve it with gluten-free sprouted bread, a serving of rice, or increase the fat of the stew by adding coconut oil to each individual serving.

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups rutabaga, cut into 1-inch pieces (approx. 1 large rutabaga)
  • 2 large carrots, cut into 1/4-inch thick discs
  • 2 cups kale, chopped (approx. 1 bunch)
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 orange pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 corn-free, gluten-free chicken bouillon cube dissolved in 2 cups water – see note
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kelp flakes or 2 teaspoon Braggs Sea Kelp Delight
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Herbamare or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Combine first 7 ingredients at the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. In a separate large bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Stir to mix and then pour over top of the ingredients in the slow cooker.
  3. Do not stir. Cover. Cook on low for 9 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  4. Serve as is, or sprinkle additional kelp flakes over top.

Notes

If you prefer stock, there are a lot of great gluten-free chicken stocks out there. Harvest Sun is a company that produces gluten-free, corn free chicken bouillon as well as gluten-free, yeast-free vegetable bouillon. I used the chicken boullion, but either one will work for this recipe.
