10 Homemade Stew and Soup Recipes for Fall and Winter
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon lard, melted and cooled
- 2 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 scant teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 onions, chopped
- 3 carrots, quartered and sliced
- 3 ribs celery, sliced
- 1 chicken, cut into pieces, fat not removed (6 to 7 pounds)
- 2 quarts (8 cups) chicken broth
- 4 cups cold water, more or less as needed
- 4 sprigs fresh parsley
- 3 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- Salt and pepper, to taste
To make noodles, combine eggs, water and milk in large bowl. Beat well with electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add salt and lard, and beat well.
In medium bowl, whisk 2 cups flour with baking powder. Gradually beat into egg mixture on low speed. With rubber spatula, stir in more flour, up to 1/4 cup if needed, to make stiff dough.
Turn dough onto floured board and knead into ball. Sprinkle additional flour on board and roll out dough to 1/16-inch thick. Using pizza wheel, slice dough into strips 1⁄4-inch wide, then slice again in half crosswise. Transfer noodles to wire rack and cover loosely with lint-free cloth. Let dry for 2 hours.
To make soup, heat oil in soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and celery; cook, stirring often, until softened, about 10 minutes.
Add chicken, broth and enough cold water to cover ingredients by 2 inches. Bring to boil; skim off foam that rises to surface. Add parsley, thyme and bay leaf. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is tender, about 2 hours.
Remove chicken from pot and set aside to cool. Remove and discard bay leaf, parsley and thyme sprigs. Let stand for 5 minutes. Skim off fat. Pull chicken from bones; set aside.
Add noodles to pot and cook until noodles float to top, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot. Yields 6 servings.
