This warming and comforting Chicken Noodle soup is so flavoursome and easy to make! It’s a real treat for little taste buds and a great way to introduce new flavours. It is loaded with veggies and warming, aromatic spices that add real depth of flavour to this simple soup!
140g rice noodles or use spaghetti
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 white onion, finely chopped
300g diced chicken breast
1 tsp minced garlic
1 heaped tsp minced ginger
1 ¼ cups/300ml no salt/low salt chicken stock
1 tbsp no salt/low salt tamari/soy sauce (omit for babies if using low salt version)
1 spring onion, finely chopped
A handful of coriander, finely chopped
Cook the noodles as per the packet instructions.
Or if you have the Pasta / Rice Cooker for the Babycook® you can use this. Add the noodles to the rice/pasta grain insert along with 1/4 cup/60ml of water. Then fill the steamer reservoir with water to level 3 (Babycook Solo Express 170ml on Standard Cooking Mode) and steam.
Once cooked, carefully remove the rice/pasta insert and drain the water from the bowl.
Add the carrot, onion, diced chicken, garlic and ginger to the steam basket of your Babycook®. Fill the steamer reservoir with water to level 3 (Babycook Solo Express 170ml on Standard Cooking Mode) and steam.
Warm the stock in a saucepan and set aside.
Once steamed, carefully open the lid and remove the steamer basket. Empty the water that is in the blending bowl into the stock – this adds even more flavour!
Add the tamari/soy sauce and stir.
Then add the noodles to the stock and combine.
Next add the steamed chicken and veggies, mix to combine.
Top with the chopped spring onions and coriander.
If you would like to serve this as a purée or with a little less texture you can tip it back into the blending bowl and blend until your desired level of texture is achieved.
Serve and enjoy!
This can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 days.
