Chicken Noodle Soup

When I saw Mum’s Chicken and Sweet Corn soup pop up on our blog at about 4pm yesterday, it was a light bulb going off in my head….guess what I was making for dinner?

I’d made some chicken stock on the weekend, enough for my Spanish Inspired Risotto and some left over with the intention of an asian style soup anyway. Ironically I’d used most of my corn in the risotto hence it became more about the veg and noodles, but it was still just as delicious.

The only things I changed from the original was to add some zucchini, only 1 cob of corn making the soup part of the recipe at the beginning, and probably more noodles.  Oh and coriander to garnish.  Beautiful warming flavours that made me feel healthy and satisfied.  This would have to be the perfect recipe for treating a cold in your house.  The ginger and garlic both great healers, and the homemade chicken stock only boosts the health factor.    Definitely a recipe I’ll be having on hand to treat the colds and flu that tend to prevail over the winter months.    Click here for the original recipe…
