Asian Chicken Noodle Soup with Baby Silverbeet

Carole's Chatter: Asian Chicken Noodle Soup with Baby Silverbeet


I was inspired to make this simple but healthy Asian Chicken Noodle Soup by my having just made some Chicken & Celery Stock.

This stock formed the base of the soup.  For flavouring I added fish sauce/salt (no salt in the stock), pepper and Chines Cooking Wine (if you don't have that some sherry would be just fine).

When the soup is simmering add your egg noodles – they'll need around 5 to 6 minutes to cook (more or less depending on their thickness).  4 minutes before the end add your washed baby silverbeet.  Because it is baby silverbeet you don't need to de-stalk it.

Simple but satisfying.

  1. What a simple, yet comforting meal. I don't think I've seen baby silverbeet here, but we get good beets with fresh leaves which I picked up yesterday.

    1. Claudio, baby Silverbeet is most similar to baby spinach. Cheers

  2. Nothing as soup-inspiring as some really good stock! I had the same thought at lunch today; the stock became black bean and mushroom soup.

  3. This sounds so good. I've been eating a lot of really heavy food lately and this sounds so simple and light but still comforting. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This sounds delicious on a cool rainy day. I was thinking of substituting baby spinach, so I'm glad to know I was on the right track :)

  6. I too love simple soups. I would likely use spinach or Swiss chard because I've never seen silverbeet for sale here.

  10. There is nothing like a good noodle soup to comfort and nourish. Looks amazing.

    BTW--I do a weekly soup (salad and sandwiches too) link up on my blog called Souper Sundays that posts every Sunday afternoon for the following week if you ever want to join in. ;-)
