Fabulous Noodle Soup Recipe

chicken stock (or vegetable if you want to make this vegetarian)
oil for sweating off vegs
2 onions - sliced
2 sticks celery - chopped small 
4/5 cloves garlic - crushed
1 courgette - peeled then peeled into slices
4 carrots - chopped
1 leek - sliced
2/3 clumps frozen spinach
cup frozen peas
1 chilli - chopped small (leave seeds in depending on how you like your heat)
optional - chinese leaf - chopped into slices
salt and pepper

Put oil in a large pan, then add the onion and the celery.  Sweat off for a few minutes.  Next add the garlic and the courgette, then the carrots.  Give it all a good stir then add the leek, spinach, frozen peas and chilli - cook for a couple of minutes before adding the stock.  Bring to the boil then simmer for half an hour. 

Add your chinese leaf if using and check the seasoning.  Serve after 5 mins.

Sometimes I add rice noodles when I add the chinese leaf.  I would serve with crusty bread.

Sometimes I make dumplings (4oz SR flour, 2oz suet, water to make a firm dough, salt) to go with it.  I would make these, put them on top of the soup then place in the oven for 20 mins (180C) until the top of the dumplings are just brown.

Oh I used to love noodle soup, haven't had any in years. Never thought to put dumplings with soup, what a good idea though. I do like dumplings!
