Light chicken noodle soup with carrot, parsnip, celery, kale, Chinese fine noodles and roasted chicken breast.
This soup is only as good as the stock used to cook it. It should be aromatic, flavoursome and lean. We used chicken stock, but vegetable stock will be equally good. You can try this recipe, to have some vegetable stock paste always handy.
We added fine Chinese noodles, but it can be replaced with any fine egg pasta. Noodles need to be cooked separately and added to the soup at the very end. If you have problem with finding kale you can replace it with seasonal greens as savoy cabbage or chard.
For super quick version use grilled chicken breast, rather than the roasted one.
Serve decorated with chopped flat leaf parsley. Enjoy!
