I was pleasantly surprised with how good this soup was. I halved the recipe, used a 10oz can of cooked chicken, and left out the almonds. My two year-old daughter and I enjoyed this for lunch, garnished with a bit of Parmesean cheese.
Hey Jude! This soup was Gooood!! I used 4 cans of Fat Free Chicken Broth (I like really brothy soup) and added 1/4 tsp. Basil, 1/4 tsp. crushed Garlic, 1/4 tsp. ground Ginger, 1 (4 ounce) can of mushrooms and 1 cup of canned Asparagus (drained) as I didn't have any Broccoli. ***This soup turned out to be a such a winner!! The sliced Almonds really gave the soup a Gourmet look and tasted Pretty Good too! I will definitely make this soup again very, very soon! Hey Jude, Thanks!!
Hey Jude, I'm sorry, but I just thought this was OK. I used fresh broccoli & left out the almonds, but basically there wasn't enough liquid - the Ramen noodles really just soaked it up, and even after adding another cup, it was mostly just noodle. I like ramen noodles ok -- and I didn't think this recipe really changed the flavor of ramen noodles. The added broccoli didn't really meld with the flavor for me. It was quick & easy, using leftover chicken, but I'm not likely to prepare this again. Thanks.
I haven't been feeling well today, and Hubby offered to make some soup. A quick check of the pantry found a lot of pastas, but the only "noodles" being Ramen. I remembered this recipe and printed it for him. We omitted the oregano/basil in order to keep the soup mild for my tummy. I also picked over the broccoli, as it didn't sound good yet. But, hubby devoured the soup. We served it with some dry toast that I dipped into the broth. Very easy and calming soup for hubbies to make for sick wives. LOL
This made a easy and flavorful soup. I used basil for the seasoning. I like a lot of broth on my soup so next time I would use another can of broth. I don't use a lot of salt when I cook so for me it was a little salty. Which is just me since I am asked often if I have forgotten what a salt shaker is used for. Thanks Hey Jude for such a easy soup recipe.
