Chicken Noodle Soup

In these days of Southerlies, a flat so cold I can see my breath when I wake up in the morning, and frustrating assignments, there is only one thing that can keep me going: Chicken Noodle Soup!

Here’s the good news: If you can boil water in a pan, you can make this soup! Seriously, that’s pretty much all it takes. Also, this makes HEAPS, yay, which meant that I could have chicken noodle soup for lunch and dinner the following day and the next day too, happy, frozen girl. The recipe I used had no vegetables, so I added some, because it feels bad bad bad to have a meal without veggies. I urge you all to make this and keep warm and rugged up.

Chicken Noodle Soup Adapted from Made by Hand by Julie Le Clerc

serves 6

1L liquid chicken stock

750 mL water

350g (ish) chicken mince

250g rice vermicelli noodles

2 bunches of bok choy, washed and chopped

3 spring onions, sliced thinly

Good handful of coriander, roughly chopped

Chili sauce (I used Huffman’s Hot Sauce- hooray!), soy sauce and lemon wedges to serve

Put chicken stock and water in a large pan or wok and bring to the boil. Once boiling put in chicken mince and boil for 5 minutes, breaking up the mince if it goes clumpy. In the last couple of minutes of cooking add in the rice vermicelli and the bok choy. When cooked, divide into bowls, sprinkle with spring onion and bok choy. Serve with soy sauce, chili sauce and lemon wedges, let people add as much or as little to their taste.

The chili gives some heat and the soy sauce adds to the depth of flavour and I love that the spring onion, lemon and coriander give a little ray of lightness, dee-lightful. This soup is so warming, nourishing even. It warms you from the inside out (effect is heightened of course if you add lots of chili harhar), I think at this time of year we all need some nourishment, so grab some soup, wrap up in a blanket and grab your favourite book- wonderful.
