This is a wholesome soup that cures all ails, including Hangover, Colds/Flu and Depression. There a million varieties, but this is mine...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First of all I had 2 chickens that I seperated the legs and breasts of to be used another time.
  2. The Carcass then cut into smaller bits I placed into a large stock pot and covered with my finest water.
  3. This is brought to a simmer and the foam skimmed of as it rises to the top.
  4. After about 10 minutes I add the vegetables and spices apart from the stelline pasta, cut leeks, peas and diced broccoli stem.
  5. This stock now is left to quietly simmer for 2 hours or more (it can be anything up to 24 hours, but who would want to wait that long).
  6. After 20 minutes I will lift out the carrot and parsnip pieces, cut them into cubes and use them in the finished soup.
  7. Strain the stock, pick any meat of the chicken and in another pot bring all remaining ingredients for the finished soup to a boil.
  8. Now it all just needs another 5 minutes of simmering to warm through the vegies, chicken and pasta. Then it's ready to make you feel good!
  9. Enjoy!
