When we first tasted this soup someone at the table said it was souperlicious and so that's what I named it.
- 6 cups water
- 2 cups spaghetti noodles, broken in small pieces
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon savory
- 1⁄2 teaspoon parsley
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups frozen peas
- 3 tablespoons carrots, grated
- 4 teaspoons red onions, grated
- 1⁄2 cup cooked chicken, diced
- 2 cups chicken broth
- Boil water.
- Turn down heat and add noodles to boiling water and then add lemon juice and.
- spices and cook until noodles are done.
- Add peas, carrots, and onion.
- Add chicken and chicken broth and then heat until soup is warm.
What I substituted: -corn for peas (since I discovered I didn't have any peas) -filini for spaghetti (because I had some and it saved me the trouble of breaking up the spaghetti) -fresh garlic for powder (because fresh is pretty much always better). What I omitted: -savory (because I didn't have any) -onion (because I don't much care for onion in soup). What I added: -hot sauce (for a little kick). Next time, I think I will also cut back a little on the pasta and up the chicken quantity. Basically, though, it was a nice easy and quick soup that was pretty tasty, and the grated carrot added an interesting texture.
This soup caught my eye because of the low calories. I made the adjustment so that the pasta (I used Capellini) was included and it comes to 146 calories and 1.6 Fat grams or 2.6 Weight Watchers Points per serving. Unfortunately the soup also lacked flavor and I found myself adding spices and hot pepper to boost the flavor. I used flavorful grilled chicken and followed the amounts indicated. This is a perfect soup for children as I think they would really enjoy the subtle flavors. Good Luck Chef!!!!
I am so proud of you peanut! You created this great soup all by yourself and it is delicious! I am glad that you like cooking and I enjoy tasting what you make. I love you! :)
