5:2 Chicken & Kale Scotch Broth (202 Calories)

No, this soup doesn't have any scotch poured in! Scotch Broth is a soup from Scotland traditionally made with lamb, barley, root vegetables, and cabbage. This version was inspired by Lavender and Lovage, but I changed up the measurements and cooking technique. This delicious, hearty low-calorie soup will warm & fill you up!
