Mariam’s Chicken soup ingredients:

1 whole chicken

2 sprigs of cinnamon

3 bay leaves

3 pieces of star anise

1 bulb garlic (I know, it’s a lot – worth it)

1 large onion

SALT & Pepper

How to:

Step 1: In a large pot place a chicken in the pot and fill the pot with water enough to cover the chicken by 1 inch.

Step 2: Loosely chop the onion, peel and chop 1 whole bulb of garlic. (remove and discard the peels from both). Add to the pot

Step 3 : Add the cinnamon, star anise & 3 bay leaves to the pot.

Step 4: Cook on medium – high heat for 20 minutes or until the mixture starts to gently bubble, then reduce the temperature to a simmer for 1 hour.

Season with salt (you’ll need more than you think but start with 1/2 a teaspoon and sprinkle gradually, keep tasting before you add more to build the salt to your liking) + pepper.

This makes for a great base for:

Pumpkin soup

Oriental inspired soup – by adding soy sauce, chopped ginger and chilli.


& Thanks Moo moo!
