Chicken Noodle Soup on a bowl
This flavoursome Chinese style soup will warm your insides on a cold winter's day. It also contains root ginger which is recommended for head colds.
900ml / 1½ pints Chicken or Vegetable stock
175g / 6oz chicken breast
1 teaspoon chopped fresh root ginger
1 clove Garlic finely chopped
550g / 1.75oz rice noodles
2 tablespoons canned or frozen sweetcorn
2 to 3 thinly sliced mushrooms
22 shredded spring onions
2 teaspoons Soy sauce, plus some extra for serving
A few mint or basil leaves to serve
HOW TO SHRED SPRING ONIONS
Shredded spring onions are made by trimming most of the green off then cutting the onion into 6cm / 2½ins lengths. Cut the lengths in half, then finely cut each half thinly.
One of the main ingredients to this recipe is chicken but pork tastes just as good. It's not quite so easy to shred as chicken but a sharp knife will cut pork into thin strands very well.
As far as additional ingredients are concerned, carrots, beans and many other ingredients can be chucked into the pot if you are in a more veggie mood. The soup can be warmed up with the addition of of a couple of chillies and a teaspoon of curry paste works wonders if you like it hot.
Whatever variations you use this is a prime example of a soup which always tastes better when home made compared to a tinned variety.
Put the chicken stock into a pan, add the chicken, ginger and garlic. Bring the contents to the boil, then lower the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked.
Take the chicken out of the pan and place on the chopping board. Shred the chicken by using two forks and simply ripping the chicken into thin shreds.
See the picture below for how the shredded chicken should look after it has been shredded.STEP 2
Put the shredded chicken back into the stock, then add the noodles, sweetcorn, sliced mushrooms, half the spring onions and the 2 teaspoons of soy sauce.
Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes until the noodles are tender.STEP 3
Ladle the soup into two bowls and place the remaining spring onions on the top.
