What are your favorites?
Rice or pasta?
What do you NOT like in your chicken soup?
Rice.... with Cream of Chicken
I actually don't like rice or pasta in my chicken soup. Like it with just the veggies and chicken. Of course I was the only one in the family that didn't like it, so I made the fine soup noodles for the rest. Had to be those very fine noodles because that's what hubby liked.
I like pasta in it, the tiny acini de pepe. I also add parm cheese to my bowl. I add the usual onion/carrot/celery but sometimes add spinach or other greens.
It's been a long time, but I would sometimes make tiny meatballs for the soup and add escarole for Italian Wedding soup.
I made the acini de pepe for my daughter when she was a little girl. She loved that.
Italian wedding soup is also a favorite in my family.
I'm not fond of cooked celery but added it for flavor. In Hungary you couldn't even find the celery stalk, only the root. It has a slightly different flavor. I grew to like it better.
I always add parsnips to my soup too, not many, just a few.
Pasta. I absolutely would not like peas in my chicken soup.
I'll agree about peas, Babs.
Well..I wouldn't want peas in there..I like celery, spinach, corn, zucchini..but not peas.. I don't want oatmeal in there either.lol..go figure
That's funny..I didn't even read your post before I said peas..GMTA..lol
I want a bowl of that wedding soup now, looks so good. Maybe when I move in with my daughter one day, I'll get back to cooking. They'll love me even more than they do now...if that's possible.
Yes they do...and there are a lot of great minds on this Forum.
Pasta in my soup,!
My mother always made her chicken soup with the carrots sliced in wide circles. I chop mine into chunks. She always used flat egg noodles.
I like all shapes..but lately I try to make it something like those tiny shells and such in the little bags..I like it to fit on the spoon..also I use a large mug for my soup..my favorite way to eat it.
This is what mine looked like but had parsnips sliced and celery and some chicken breast chunks. I also did matzo balls sometimes. My hubby liked liver dumplings too...wasn't crazy about making those.
I just remembered this book I used to read to my grandsons.....
Oh yes @Karen McKenzie ! Here is my favorite mug...
Love your mug..so cute! I've been using these Corning ware ones for ages..
I have some soup bowl/mugs that I brought back from Hungary but I haven't made chicken soup since my husband died. Maybe that's an exaggeration but it's almost true.
@Sheldon Scott , @Steve North , do you guys make chicken soup? If so, what are your recipes?
This is a pot of my homemade chicken and vegetable soup that is one of my favorite soups to make. There are no peas in it but plenty of green beans, carrots, corn, cabbage, onions and bell pepper, potatoes, pasta...and plenty of chicken.
Looks and sounds good. My last batch had cabbage too.
Mmmmm, love cabbage. Might have added a little to mine sometimes too. Not too much because it can over power it.
I find the secret is putting the cabbage in first with the onions and letting it cook down for awhile before adding the other veggies, etc. If you do this...all the flavors mingle and none over powers the others.
I love chicken soup any which way
