broth

shredded carrot

diced precooked duck meat

chopped spinach

ginger garlic paste

rice, (cooked previously)

chopped onion

smoked dried jalapeño peppers (Optional per bowl)

chicken vegetable noodle soup

Even though it’s late July doesn’t mean soup is off the table. Cooler nights, vegetable stock in the fridge and pieces and gizzards from a chicken in the freezer…. soup.
a basic recipe, for all those who make their own soup, just peruse the pictures.

It seems like a lot of work but make a small portion of noodle dough *. Set aside covered for an hour.
IMG_5803

To two mason jars of vegetable stock, previously made, add the back and gizzards from a chicken and simmer in a stock pot with some star anise.  Season slightly.

IMG_5804 IMG_5805

Dice baby carrots, sweet red onion, lettuce, greens, sliced thin broccoli what ever else you desire.

(Warning ! This recipe has several pans) In a fry pan saute each of the soup additions in oil,butter,bacon fat etc.
I saute and season each separately. Set aside.

IMG_5806 IMG_5807 IMG_5808

After the simmering broth has loosened the meat from the chicken pieces,

IMG_5809

strain broth into a smaller container and pour back into the stockpot. Set the chicken pieces to cool.

Set up the stock to simmer and add the sauteed adjuncts.

IMG_5810

De-bone and dice the meat from the chicken pieces, dice the gizzards. Add to the soup.

Proceed to roll out noodle dough and cut into desired shape, here wide short noodles. Boil in a pot of water,

IMG_5811

with a strainer spoon, add to the broth.

IMG_5812 IMG_5813 IMG_5814

Orange garlic Kale medley sauté

For once , instead of the skillet, the Stainless steel Faberware fry pan was used.
Olive oil and butter, smashed garlic about 3 cloves, sautéed till fragrant
Add kale medley mix

20140721-192528-69928250.jpg

Dash of salt, cook till wilted,
Add clementine orange, peeled and ground (I ran several through the smoothie machine (blender with a spout) and had them in the fridge. I suppose you could have just used the wedges if you wanted.

20140721-192741-70061438.jpg
Complete cooking…

20140721-192813-70093647.jpg

braciole

I don’t even know how to pronounce this but my wife had bought some at the store for me, frozen, now thawed, it was time to cook them.

Having mozzarella cheese in them I knew I couldn’t cook them too long. So I just browned them and braised them stove top for a short period of time.

 

IMG_5267In a large pot with olive oil browning.

After turning it and browning the sides I added a bit of stock, covered the pot and cooked a short time , about 10 minutes.

IMG_5268IMG_5269

IMG_5270Plated up with rice and veggies.

Not bad for a store bought piece of beef.

I would like to try this and make it with different ingredients, mushrooms  with onions would be good.

BTW these were tied with butchers twine around the circumference.

IMG_5271served with a dark Porter, Home-brewed of course.
