I love no recipe recipes! This simple soup is made from chicken broth. Chicken broth is made by slowly simmering chicken on the bone for over 6 hours in water with a mix of root vegetables such as carrot & leek. To give an umami flavour to my broth, I also add kombu (seaweed), rehydrated shitake mushrooms and ginger.
I make this soup whenever I want to give my digestive system a bit of a break. Its very soothing and nourishing!
I like to make this broth in big batches (4 Litres) at a time. I cool the mixture and pour it into empty, recyled1L plastic water bottles. I store them in the freezer- ready to use when I need to make a quick soup for lunch or dinner!
I thinly sliced some enoki and shitake mushrooms (up to 10g shitake mushroom is low FODMAP), alongside some carrots, spring onion tops and pak choi. These raw vegetables soften when added to the broth - no need to cook separately before adding!
I added a soy marinated egg. Salty on the outside, jammy on the inside! Check out my other blog post here if you would also like to make your own soy marinated eggs!
Finally I added some black sesame seeds. Black sesame seeds have a nutty taste and really add a special something to this dish!
And that's it!! Broth bowl in a flash x What vegetables will you add to your chicken broth?
If you decide to give this no recipe, recipe a go, please share your thoughts, pictures and tweaks. Good luck!
