Chick’n Stars Soup

the aprilblake blog has published this fall favorite Chick’n Stars Soup recipe featuring our Edward & Sons Not-Chick'n Natural Bouillon Cubes: Ingredients Makes 4 servings (or feeds two hungry adults)
  • one quart vegetable stock
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 Edward & Sons Not-Chick'n Natural Bouillon Cubes
  • 2-3 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 5-6 baby carrots, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely diced
  • dash of garlic powder or half of 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup pastina
  • oil
  • Gardein Chick’n Strips, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Add a teaspoon (or two if using a lot of vegetables) of oil to a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Saute the vegetables and garlic until soft, about five minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and water and bring the soup up to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, add the bouillion cubes, then the pastina. Stir, and reduce heat to a simmer.
  5. Simmer the soup for six minutes, and meanwhile heat up a teaspoon of oil in a small frying pan over medium high heat. Once warm, add the Gardein Chick’n strips and saute until browned on all sides, about five minutes.
  6. Remove soup from heat when done, and also the chick’n strips.
  7. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and garnish with the chopped chick’n pieces.
Note: If you have leftovers and put it in the fridge, you may need to re-hydrate the soup with a bit of water before heating. The pasta absorbs the extra water in the container as it sits. This does not affect the taste in a bad way, in fact I think it’s better after a spin in the fridge! Doesn’t that just bring back memories of being in elementary school and watching the Price is Right on a day when you had the sniffles? To put that into a more common adult situation, it feels just as great to cure your hangover when you wake up Sunday morning and want something comforting and not too complex in your belly. Not that we here know about hangovers… no sirreeee. Natural Bouillon Recipe Click here for printer friendly version Find Great Natural Bouillon Cubes Recipes Here.
