Servings
Ingredients

1 each  whole roasting chicken, without skin
1 each  yellow onion
1 each  medium carrots
1 each  medium russet potato
2 lb  kohlrabi
3 each  medium zucchini
4 each  medium celery stalks
1 1/2 cup  fresh cubed pumpkin
2 each  bay leaf
1 cup  fresh cilantro
0 1/2 cup  tomato juice
1 tsp  Hawaij spice
1 pinch  salt
Directions
  1. Boil chicken in a 6-quart soup pot. Clean the fat from the soup. If you have poured off the water, refill pot halfway and bring poultry to a boil again.
  2. Add vegetables, cut into very large chunks, bay leaves, cilantro and the tomato juice if desired (this will make soup darker than the original).
  3. Season with salt and Hawaij spice. (The correct amount of Hawaij spice will make soup golden, but not too dark.)
  4. Simmer for about an hour, or until chicken is soft. Add salt to taste.
  5. Remove cilantro and bay leaves before serving.
