Instructions:

Soup:

  1. In a large stock pot, heat the oil over medium-high. Add onions, 1/3 cup cilantro, and garlic. Sauté 3 minutes.

  2. Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, black beans, rotisserie chicken, healthy U Mexico spice and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Push the chicken breasts to the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil.

  3. Add the carrots, peppers and zucchini. Return to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and cook another 10-12 minutes.

  4. Stir in half the cheese. Pour a scoop into each bowl and top with the remaining cheese, fresh cilantro, fresh avocado.


Garlic knots:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, arrowroot flour, garlic powder, baking soda and salt. Add the almond milk and 1 tablespoon of olive oil and mix to make a smooth dough.

  3. Lightly dust a working board with some extra arrowroot flour. Roll out the dough into a rectangle 1/3 inch thick. Cut the dough lengthwise into 8 strips.

  4. Roll out each strip into a rope then tie it into a knot. Place them on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the knots with ½ tablespoon of olive oil.

  5. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until they are just starting to turn golden.

  6. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until just softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in parsley and season with salt.

  7. Transfer the garlic mixture to a bowl and add warm knots. Gently toss until coated and serve.
