There has never been a working day where I have not tried a new dish or read something new about world cuisines. I wake up every morning with the intention to share a different or out of the box recipe with my Whisk Affair community. However, there are obviously days when I fall sick or not in my best form. That’s when a simple meal of soups such as Tomato Basil Soup and Barley and Vegetable Soup recharge me and help me in walking extra miles. The other day, when I was feeling slightly weak, I made a bowl of Clear Chicken Soup for myself and right from its first morsel, I started to rejuvenate. My kid told me that Clear Chicken Soup is like a magical potion which instantly made me feel better, ha! Not too elaborate, Clear Chicken Soup just needs basic ingredients like chicken with bones on, onion, garlic, carrot for making it! It can be flavoured using bay leaf, thyme, freshly cracked black pepper and some salt. Clear Chicken Soup has smaller, shredded pieces of chicken which you can easily devour. Also, as this soup is not too spicy, it is perfect to be served to family members whenever they feel sick. It is neither too heavy on the stomach nor it is too light. It is both filling and wholesome. So, make sure to relish Clear Chicken Soup while you tug your blanket during sickness or without a rhyme or reason! Scribble down its easy recipe:
