Quick Chicken Soup

I have been a little unwell this week so I wanted to whip up a quick, easy and nourishing meal for the family. I did not have much in the fridge as I had not been shopping. I did however have some chicken stock (always in my freezer), carrots, corn, and frozen peas.

I also had my garden available to me, which I am just loving. It has saved me going to the fruit and vege shop on many occasions because its bulked out my supplies. Its also very yummy.

This is what happened: Chicken Soup!
Here is what I used:


-1 onion diced

-2 cloves of garlic chopped finely

-1 carrot sliced

-1 cob of corn with kernels cut off

-1/2 cup of frozen peas

-2 leaves of silverbeet

-6 sprigs of thyme

-Handful of parsley (chop stems and leaves and keep separate)

-2 bunches of soba noodles (look for 100% buckwheat ones)

-200-300 grams of chicken meat chopped (I used leg meat cut off bone)

-4 cups of homemade chicken stock (or enough to cover)



-Brown onion, garlic, thyme, and parsley stems (I used the chicken fat from the stock to brown them in). Add carrot and fry for 1-2 minutes

-Add stock, corn, peas and silverbeet and bring to the boil

-Add chicken and allow to simmer until cooked (I had mine on stove for about half an hour)

-about five minutes before serving, break the soba noodles into the soup.

-Sprinkle parsley leaves to serve.
