DIRECTIONS

  • Put the chicken in a pot with enough water to more than cover.
  • Add 6 leeks.
  • Cover the pot and simmer gently for 1 hour or until the chicken is falling off the bone.
  • Remove the chicken and reserve.
  • Strain the stock into a fresh pot, add the rice and cook in a covered pot for 10 minutes.
  • Add the grated carrots and the remainder of the chopped leeks and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
  • Taste for intensity of flavour and, if necessary, reduce further to increase the taste.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Chop a little of the reserved chicken and add to the finished soup.
  • Note: The reserved chicken is sometimes served as a separate course with mealie or boiled potatoes and a very strong sauce or perhaps yellow mustard.
