    Soup! (Doug Irvine)

    OK Kiddies, now that we all have our priorities straight, this is what I did tonight..first, we had a big, old, stewin hen, that I did yesterday, took all the meat off, and continued cooking it down,with the bones, skin, etc(dunt esk)(about the etc)!!This gave me about 4 qts of a really great stock, of which I took one qt, and with other things, made a soup, that was spectacular(according to my Lady Wife!) Here tis...

  • 1 qt GOOD homemade chicken stock
  • 1 one lb block of tofu, medium firm(Sorry bout that JB!)
  • 1 medium yam or sweet potato, peeled, chopped, into 1 " chunks
  • 2 or 3 or 4 green Jalapenos, seeded and chopped, if they aint hot,
  • add a hab or 2
  • 1/2 cup small macaroni shells
  • 2 tbls of good madras curry powder
  • 1 tbls garam masala
  • 2 cups chopped up chicken from that stewin hen!
  • 1 large white onion, vidalia, walla walla, or similar, chopped fairly fine
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled, let sit for half hour, then chop fine
  • 1 2 inch knob of fresh ginger, chopped fine, or coarse, and more if you love ginger!!
  • fat....olive oil, chicken fat, or combo of both, chicken fat has the flavor, but also the bad stuff, cholesterol!!! Only enuf to simmer the onions, garlic and ginger!
  • Simmer the onion, ginger & garlic at LOW heat, in a pot with a heavy bottom(anybody out there with that problem after all the Christmas goodies????) Sprinkle the curry powder over this, and then add the yam or sweet potato chunks, and cook on low for about twenty minutes....pour in half of the chicken stock, and let simmer for another twenty...cut up the tofu into one inch squares, and add that to the mixture...add more stock, cook another ten minutes and taste, for salt, add some if needed, then add the chopped peppers, and simmer for another 15 minutes...throw in the rest of the stock, add water if necessary, so it wont be too thick, add the half cup of shells, or whatever macaroni takes your fancy, and let this cook until the macaroni is medium cooked, then add the chicken and the garam masala, check to correct the seasoning, and cook for about ten minutes longer. It will be thick, and really good soup, serve with hot rolls, Marie made Irish Soda bread! Fantastic!!! Add Calvin's chile powder if it aint hot enuf....I did!
    Cheers, Doug in BC
