Ginger Soy Chicken Noodle Soup

A Guest Post by Big Sister

Great minds think alike!  As the Tumbleweed Contessa was defending against the cold weather with her pressure cooker Chicken Soup I was whipping up a chicken soup from a friend.  I gladly moved back to Texas a few years ago because I could not stand cold and cloudy any longer.  This week we are having an unusual stretch of that weather which is so reminiscent of those days before I moved.  I was frumping around my house with all my layers on and staring hopefully at the window when this recipe dinged in my mailbox.  It really did turn my frown upside down.  I still need to see the sun mind you, but this helped.

Michelle B. gave me this recipe.  It is absolutely divine and OH SO EASY.  The soup makes enough for 8-10 people but we ate almost all of it between two of us.  This is going into my list of regulars for sure.  Don’t skip the greens in this one.  They count as vegetables and add great flavor.

  1. This soup looks delicious! But it was 114F yesterday here in Australia, so I’ll save it for our winter 😛

  2. Thanks for linking up at Show Me Your Plaid Monday’s! Oh a good bowl of soup is always needed on these cold winter days!
