The beauty of this soup is the fact that it is easy to include whatever you want to this mix of ingredients, depending on what you already have. It's a lovely, warming, hearty soup for any occasion, which is cheap and easy to make too!
To thicken the soup you can add 1-2 tablespoons of gluten free flour to the mix while simmering.
To make soup creamy, add some cream or creme fraiche to the pan at the end of the cooking process with the heat turned down very low to avoid curdling, and blend. However, this is something I haven't tried myself yet.
I have labelled this dish as "anti-candida" and "sugar-free", though with noodles you need to check that it is the rice flour type, and not wheat/gluten based. The noodles are optional if you want to leave it out.
Very tasty and just perfect to bring back my wife's appetite after a bout of flu. I added a few leafs of baby spinach, a handful of asparagus and a small chilli pepper. Took me longer than 15mins to prepare, but it was worth it! - 31 Dec 2010
A MAY ZING! - 08 Mar 2012
I made this using veg stock and left out the chicken and celery, but the mix of herbs was really nice and everybody loved the soup. It's also a very adaptable recipe, so I will be making this again! - 01 Mar 2012
