This goes together in a flash-and is really flexible for using ingredients on hand. You can either make this with noodles or dumplings, or leave them out. We like our soup salty, so adjust that to your taste.
I now have my crock-pot 6 months. Because I don't need it as a time saver I have not used as much as I thought I would. But, it is great to make good chicken stock and I use it for that purpose a lot. I let the crock-pot do this during the night. My crock-pot is 3 liter/quart so a small one, adjust the ingredients to the size pot you are using and use your own judgement. I find it handy to freeze some of the stock in ice-cube bags for sauces.
If you do not have all the ingredients on the list...it does not matter, you also do not have to follow the amounts exactly, be creative and add other veg or more of the same, or what you have in the fridge and think is suitable for making this recipe, just let it cook slowly to get a great rich stock. Have fun with this and enjoy the result!
This is one of my favorite soup recipes, especially in the fall when it's just getting crisp and cool outside. However, it's also great in the summer when my basil is going nuts (like it is right now!)
This soup is my own recipe and is easy to make. It's thick and creamy texture is very filling and combined with a crusty french bread becomes a meal unto itself. Reheats on the stove or in the microwave very well so don't be afraid to make this several days ahead of time.
This recipe came from my friend, Michelle, who I used to work with...This was her Mom's recipe -- who was the chef in a small bistro here in Southern Indiana...Michelle's Mom passed away a couple of years ago and I'm so proud to have this recipe to pass on...
I got this recipe from a restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland many years ago. When the chef gave it to me, he, accidentally on purpose, left out the Cream Sherry, but I knew to include it. You can purchase crab roe from Charleston Seafood. It is $18.37 for 1 lb. (frozen) (shipped overnight). You can contact them at www.charlestonseafood.com or 1-(888) 609-3474. A substitute for crab roe are the yolks of hard boiled eggs. Your guests will absolutely love this VERY EASY TO MAKE SOUP.
We love this Tortellini Soup with the chicken & veggies in it. I'm not really sure how long I have been making this soup. I use to make it just using chicken broth. Then one day I made it with the Chicken & Veggies.Yummy
