Sage Mountain Farm's Chicken, Rice, and Winter Vegetable Soup
1. Boil chicken in a large pot of water (about 8-10 cups) with chopped carrots, celery, onion, tomato, tomatillos, garlic, ginger, and herbs for one hour.
2. If using bone-in chicken, remove chicken from broth, shred and discard bones, then add shredded chicken back to the pot. Dice remaining vegetables and apples and add them to your pot. Cover and simmer for an additional 45 minutes, adding more water as needed.
3. Add 1/3 cup long-grain brown rice to pot and cover. Simmer for another 15-30 minutes, or until rice is tender. Remove from heat.
4. Season with freshly ground salt and black pepper, to taste. Finish with a generous squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if you like.
