Minestrone Soup + Basil Cheese Chicken - while your minestrone lentil soup cooks to perfection in the inner pot of your Tiger rice cooker, you can make this delicious cheese topped basil chicken recipe in the Tacook cooking plate at the same time. #chickenrecipe #ricecookerrecipes #healthyeating | Tiger USA

MINESTRONE SOUP… WITH LENTILS?

You bet!

You see, minestrone soup is a thick Italian vegetable soup commonly made of with a base of onions, carrots and tomatoes. And while you’ll sometimes find certain recipes containing pasta or rice – almost all minestrone soup recipes call for the inclusion of beans.

And what better legume to use than the mighty lentil in this easy, healthy soup.

Lentils are loaded with protein, iron and folate – and are super low in calories. We like!

There’s a wonderful hearty and smoky undertone to this rice cooker soup recipe from the inclusion of a bit of bacon. It really cranks the flavor dial to eleven!

 

A CHEESY CHICKEN RECIPE

Now, while your minestrone lentil soup cooks to perfection in the inner pot of your Tiger rice cooker, you can make this delicious cheese topped basil chicken recipe in the Tacook cooking plate at the same time.

Simply select the STEWSOUP setting on your Tiger JAJ-A multicooker – and dinner will be ready in 25 short minutes!

The cheese topped chicken and potatoes are savory with a little garden fresh pop from the basil.

And your minestrone soup will be hearty and filling – yet light enough to adhere to your New Year’s resolution to eat healthy.

Bon appétit!
