This delicious Asian inspired soup made with home made chicken broth is light in carbs, low in calories, big in flavour and super healthy.
Anyone who knows me knows I am big on using home-made stocks. Making your own has so many benefits, but first and foremost, home-made stocks form the basis for an array of amazing foods. They also taste better than anything you can buy and they’re 100% natural, because you control what goes in.
Use home-made stock
I make stock from bones I buy fresh from my butcher. I cook large batches at a time and then freeze it in a range of different sized containers. This way, I can just take out what I need for a particular meal.
I have several containers about 400ml in volume. That’s perfect for making soup for one, simply by adding fresh vegetables and delicious flavours. This Asian-style recipe is just one variety and you’ll find that if you experiment, it’s easy to do.
The soup shared in this recipe has a Chinese inspired flavour profile, yet you can choose any flavours you wish. Once you have the basic technique down, just have a play with the flavours you like.
If you use vegetable stock instead of a meat stock, you’ll have the perfect soup for vegans that still tastes amazing. Whatever stock you use is up to you – but do try to make your own!
One more thing is you can make the most of what you have in the fridge and store cupboard. There’s no need to run out and buy special ingredients, just use what you have.
So without further ado, here’s my delicious Asian inspired soup with home made chicken broth. Or as I also call it, my anything goes soup with home-made chicken stock.
