Recipe - Chicken, Vegetable and Hungarian Paprika Sausage Soup
I think that if someone was crazy enough to commission me to write a cookbook I'd have to call it something along the lines of "How to freestyle quick and easy dishes with sh*t you got at home". ;)
This is just a mix of stuff that I had at home that seemed to work together and it doesn't take all that long to cook either.
You can feed somewhere between two and four people with the proportions in this recipe. Add some crusty white bread and it is instantly a bit more filling.
As always - freestyle the recipe to your hearts content. Add and subtract ingredients as you feel fit and what suits what you have at home.
Ok, let's have a look at how I cooked this.
Ingredients (serves 2 - 4)
2 - 3 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes
2 medium sized carrots, peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes
2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2 cm cubes
200g Hungarian Paprika Sausage, cut into 2 cm cubes
4 salad onions, thinly sliced
450 ml chicken stock
250 ml water
A handful of parsley, finely chopped
Bring the stock and water to a boil. Add the potatoes, put a lid on the pot and let it boil for about 8 minutes.
Add chicken, carrot and sausage. Give it a good stir, bring it back to the boil and let it boil for another 5 minutes or so.
Stir in the spring onion and when it has boiled for another minute - stir in the parsley and remove from the heat.
