About this recipe: The perfect soup made by blending a curious combination of ingredients together. Chicken is simmered with aduki beans, wild rice, onions, sweet potatoes, courgettes and chicory. Perfect for the cold winter months.
Aduki beans are also known as adzuki beans, you can purchase them in Chinese/Oriental speciality stores.
enjoyable but I think I should have added a little salt, my stock wasn't salty enough to do the job..... - 16 Sep 2011
I made this recipe without the "escarole", because I could not get it where I live, however, the soup was absolutely fabulous without it. My family loved it, even my 4 and 6 year old children gobbled it up. My husband commented that the next time I make it, he would like more meat in it. I used 5 thighs instead of 4 to make make up for the Escarole and he still wanted more meat. None of this soup was thrown out. We ate all of it over 3 days. It's a keeper. - 15 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this soup is very good! you can add whatever vegetables you want... aduki or adzuki beans are fantastic, a delicious way of adding more fibre to your diet, and they go so well with the sweet potato flavour! *warning* if you are not used to eating too much fibre, the adzuki beans may sneak up on you ... - 14 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
