Chicken, Noodle & Vegetable Soup Recipe # 1001

>
<
Chicken-noodle soup is probably the most unglamorous yet also one of the universally most loved dishes. Who doesn’t remember the comforting warmth it provided when ones Mom utilized it for that all-curing remedy (along with Vicks’VapoRub) during childhood and later as a grown-up the go-to comfort dish that made everything feel good again ? 🙂
As for me, no week goes by without chicken noodle soup showing up at least once, sometimes twice. If I prepare it for guests, I usually make a boneless version. For myself (and Bella), I always prepare the soup with bone-in chicken. For me, holding a leg or drumstick or wing in my hand and pulling the meat off with my teeth is a big part of the pleasure of eating chicken noodle soup. Here now is the version I had for today’s lunch……

” Borscht “

.
.
On a cold and / or rainy night, a hearty borscht will make you instantly
feel better and give you great visual as well as culinary satisfaction.
I have had borscht with all kinds of protein, fish, beef, pork, poultry,
and sometimes vegetables only. My favorite two are goose and veal.
No goose to be found at my butcher today, but veal ribs in abundance.
( I wonder how old that veal really was, seemed more like ribs from a
full grown cow to me  🙂

Here is my version of borscht. You will notice i did not use sour cream
nor dill this time, although I had both at home. The reason was that the
ribs gave such a strong and rich flavor to the soup that I did not want to
distract from it by adding to many other flavors.
Meat and vegetables, pure  and unadulterated   🙂

Ingredients :

Veal Ribs,
Red beets,           peeled, diced, cooked, strained, cooking liquid reserved
Potatoes,             diced
Cabbage,             diced
Carrots,               diced
Onions,               diced
Green peppers,  diced
Garlic,                 paste
Cilantro,             chopped
salt,                      to taste
cayenne,             to taste

Method :

Simmer ribs in salted water until tender. Add potatoes, onions, carrots and garlic and simmer until vegetables are tender but firm.
Add beets, peppers, cabbage and seasoning and simmer for five minutes. Remove all ribs and vegetables into serving dish.
Add reserved red beet cooking liquid to broth, adjust seasoning if necessary and ladle broth over ribs and vegetables.
Sprinkle with cilantro or herbs of your choice.
( Note: Traditionally the beets are cooked with the other vegetables together in the broth. However, it is my opinion that the presentation improves by cooking them separate )
