Soul Food

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!

  1. Hi Jonathon,
    No i haven’t cooked Avgolemano but i’d love to have a go…the flavours are right up my alley: chicken YUM, lemon YUM and egg (double) YUM. Have you got a traditional recipe for it?…I’ve got a Greek follower on twitter who sounds like a fabulous cook going by the food converstations we’ve had. I’ll ask if he has the recipe. Don’t you just LOVE twitter??? LOL xx Su

  2. That does look delicious – I love a good consomme – I have had a beautiful Duck one. I would like to learn how to make Avgolemano. Have you cooked that?
