    kelly in TO's Note:

    A beautiful soup, in taste, appearance, and nutrition. This is a complete meal in itself. This recipe includes directions for the stock, if you don't have time a chicken bouillon cube works as well. Just be sure to cook some chicken pieces to add into the soup near the end, it's worth it.

    Units: US | Metric

    Chicken stock (if making from scratch)


    1. 1
      For the stock; put all the ingredients into a medium pot, cover with water, about 10 cups, and bring to a boil. Skim off the scum that floats to the surface, and simmer the stock until the chicken has cooked, about 1 1/2 hours. Leave the chicken to cool in the stock.
    2. 2
      For the soup, sweat the diced carrot, celery and onion in the oil in a medium pan together with the garlic until the vegetables are soft. Add the sliced shiitake mushrooms and fry until cooked.
    3. 3
      When the stock is ready, strain the liquid over the vegetables and mushrooms. You'll need 8 cups.
    4. 4
      Keep the chicken carcass and pick off the cooked meat in small pieces. Add this to the soup with the spinach, when the spinach has wilted in the soup add the nutmeg, salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      As an variation you may also add a poached egg or some grated parmesan on top of the soup.

      Very good. I used 10 cups of chicken broth, and I just cooked pieces of chicken breast in the broth (very tender). Couldn't find shiitake mushrooms at my grocery store, so I used mixed dried mushrooms, which I reconstituted in boiling water and then added (water and mushrooms) to the veggies. I wish an amount for the nutmeg were in the ingredients--I just put some in (maybe half a teaspoon, maybe a whole teaspoon--it kind of rushed out of the bottle); it didn't seem like it was too much. And I used three carrots and doubled the amount of spinach. Next time, I'll probably omit the salt. Maybe I'll add some roasted garlic, too. Mmmm.... Thanks for posting!
