  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1.5 cups diced shallots 170 g
  • 3 sprigs of thyme leaves pulled off the stem
  • 3 cups 316 g carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups 260 g celery, chopped
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 30 g white dry cooking wine
  • 2 cups milk fat free or cashew
  • 2 cups broth I used bone
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken breast 650 g
  • 2 cups frozen peas 230 g
  • 20 oz cauliflower steamed, then blended with a little of your broth
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a heavy bottomed pot or large, deep skillet, sauté butter, shallots and thyme for a few minutes over medium-hight heat until soft and fragrant. (I used this huge cast iron skillet that I LOVE to use for large one-dish family meals.)
  • Add carrots, celery, and salt and sauté for five more minutes. Then add garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Sprinkle veggies with 2 tbs all purpose flour and stir until well combined. Add the wine and let it cook for just a minute, then add milk, whisking gently until it thickens.
  • Add broth, shredded chicken, frozen peas, and blended steamed cauliflower and combine well. Finish with some fresh cracked pepper and any additional salt to taste.
  • At this point you can serve it as a soup alongside a biscuit or piece of crusty bread. Or you can cover with a layer of pie crust or biscuit dough and bake until the top is brown and cooked through for a more traditional pot pie. The macros are calculated for the soup alone.


  • We baked ours with phyllo dough layered on top and loved it. But it wouldn’t get crispy so I didn’t write the recipe to include it. Perhaps if you draped the pan without letting the phyllo actually lay in the soup? Let me know if you try! It would also be delicious with puff pastry. But this soup was to die for.
