All the best “Dr. Moms” out there know there is nothing better for a cold than rest and a warm bowl of chicken soup! One of my favorite ways to alleviate cold symptoms is a soup recipe that also includes ginger, a natural way to increase circulation (to help ward off the chills) and help loosen the congestion of a cold. This yummy recipe for Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup With Vegetables is adapted from a recipe from Real Simple Magazine. It uses rotisserie chicken, so it is a really easy recipe to assemble.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small red onion, thinly chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
- 2 32-ounce containers low-sodium chicken broth
- 2 medium parsnips, peeled and chopped
- 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
- 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
- 1 medium turnip, peeled and chopped
- 1 1/2 cups egg noodles
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1 2-to 2 1/2-pound rotisserie chicken
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 4 scallions, sliced
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the broth. Stir in the parsnips, carrots, celery, turnip, and ½ teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Add noodles and cook until al dente.
- Meanwhile, using a fork or your fingers, shred the chicken meat, discarding the skin and bones.
- Add the chicken, peas, and scallions to the saucepan and cook until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes.
