It is getting cold here and I canít stand it. Sorry about my rants, Iím just not in love with upcoming -20 F.

Late this afternoon I had to pick some left over greens and herbs from my garden and it was so coooooooooooooooooooold outside that I decided to warm myself with homemade chicken noodle soup and multigrain toast. The soup is made with homemade tomato pasta which recipe originated in Turkey. With some Ďpenos and a lot of ground black pepper it was just what doctor prescribed me for this cold weather. :lol:

Oh shush don't get touchy about black pepper. Posted ImageThere are some jalapenos in this soup too it is not just all black pepper. :rofl:

 

I would gladly share recipe(s) with all of you.

I never measure ingredients for tomato pasta or for any bread. Throughout of years of making them I have developed touch for dough so I would do my best to give you all right measurements.Hope I wont miss Posted Image

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

4 bone in chicken thighs

1 celery stalk chopped

1 med size carrot chopped

1 small parsnip chopped

1 big tomato chopped or 1 can of crushed tomatoes

Salt to taste

Enough water to cover 2 inches above chicken.

Optional: one leek stalk, or bit of cabbage ,or peas, or string beans or 1 whole potato peeled.

Cook in pressure cooker on medium heat for about 40 min or in stock pot until is done.

After is done, transfer in stock pot, bring to a boil and add pasta about ¼ cup.Lower down heat to low and simmer until pasta is done. In the mean time slice just one round slice of onion bulb and toss it on very hot fraying pan with out oil. Cook it on both sides to get it bit dark with out burning to much. Add the onion slice to the almost done soup, adjust taste: add more salt, black pepper, parsley leaves or hot peppers.

Serve with bread toast.
Dry fried onion gives to any soup a realy nice flavor.Instead of chicken beef or veal bones could be used to.

Enjoy

I'll post recipes for multigrain bread and tomato pasta over the weekend.

Ok, CJ...... I'm making your soup tonight. Well, except I prefer soup that is more like a stew, and hence, more filling. So, on top of your ingredients, I'm adding a second poblano, a bell pepper, 3 jalapenos, 2 parsnips, and some small yukon gold potatoes. "Some potatoes" because I asked my son to cut a couple up for me, and he apparently isn't sure what "a couple" really is! The veggies are roasting right now - I'll probably adjust the liquid, too, and will let you know how much of each I end up using.

Later:
Skipped the BP (of course!), skipped the water, and skipped the blender/FP, but did hit it with the hand mixer just a bit, so it's still chunky. Added cayenne powder and oregano, and at least doubled the thyme. Saw your red savina, raised it to T.Scorp.

Oh G.! I'm so excited to hear how you liked it!!! FWI - not one grain of BP was used in my batch! haha But how was it w/the t. scorp? I wanted to use Fatalli powder, but I think Scovie's hid it from me. How was it with the extra peppers and parsnips? Parsnips???? Ga-genious! I was wondering if you were going to puree it or not...next time I'll leave it a bit chunkier for body. Your batch certainly sounds scrumptious!!!! Cauliflower has never felt so proud! haha

Scovie went out diggin' in my haunted garden (looks more like a graveyard now!), and came up with some forgotten-about carrots. They're huge, and quite funny looking! The last thing I wanted was more veggies to preserve. BUT I just found a Carrot-Habanero Soup that sounds intriguing! I'll be trying that out this week sometime, but I think I'll ditch the hab for something more festive...maybe a chocolate bhut? It calls for white wine, so I s'pose I'll be buying a box of that soon! hahaha One glass for the soup, 5 for me! ;) Have fun slurpin' your soup!

And Ela - the only thing missing was a piece of your exquisite bread! I'm tryin' to learn tho! How did the jalapeno/cheddar creation turn out?

The carrot-hab soup does sound intriguing. The t-scorp made it HOT - holy cow! I dumped in much more than I had intended, having taken off the shaker lid and the stuff came out BOOM! But that aside, it was truly scrumptuous - thanks for sharing your recipe!

It was yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum. I could hear my boys growling upstairs over left overs.:rofl: I think next time I would go with more jalapenos and bake it a bit longer.Probably 10 more minutes than I did this one.
