I hate winter, but I love winter food; especially soup. I have my mother’s classic chicken soup recipe and it’s awesome, believe me! This recipe from the June 2009 issue of Gourmet Traveller is pretty darn good and is simple to make. If you have chicken stock, chicken mince, garlic, onion, celery, angel hair pasta & flat leaf parsley, then you’re in business.
It’s a very clear soup; more of a consomme. It has clean flavours and hits the spot for a light lunch or entre during winter.
I don’t religiously buy Gourmet Traveller magazine. Usually I read it on a Saturday morning at my local cafe when we have brunch to spend some time alone together (a weekly treat for two people with busy schedules). If I see lots of great recipes that I’m likely to cook I go and buy a copy. I bought this issue without a second thought!
