Elle's Kitchen: Chicken Noodle Soup

Is It Food or Is It Medicine?


Today I had to bring my son
home from school because he
is very sick.  He was too sick to
even walk from the dorm to
the cafeteria.  This is what I
always make when someone
is sick in our house.

I got this recipe from my friend
Susan, we have each tweaked it a
bit but both agree the nutmeg
makes it!


Ingredients:

2 Tabl. Olive Oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 scallions, chopped
3 medium carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 1/2 cups uncooked egg noodles
1 Tabl. fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 Teas. freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 Teas. ground pepper
49 1/2 oz. can chicken broth


Heat oil in a soup pot
over medium high heat. 
Add garlic, onion, carrot,
scallion and celery and
cook for 4 minutes,
stirring occasionally.


Stir in remaining ingredients.
Heat to boiling: reduce heat.
Cover and simmer for 15
minutes, stirring occasionally.


Serve with love.
