My chicken vegetable soup recipe, aka Hühner-Gemüsesuppe, is great when you're looking for dinner menu ideas. Use your own stock or buy some. Either way, it'll be ready in no time at all! Comforting deliciousness in a bowl. Add some fresh crusty bread to dunk into the broth.
If you're wanting a real German taste, then use some homemade or store-bought spätzle instead. Not much more is needed! Perhaps some dessert ... dinner's ready!

Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
A bit of this and a bit of that ...
I usually use chicken legs with backs attached ... the most economical cuts available in my area. Use whatever you wish.
If you're making the stock, then remember to trim off as much fat as you can from the meat.
Sliced mushrooms would be wonderful added with the veggies.
Season with curry if desired.
Tips on How to Make Soup ...
Basically, how to make soup using poultry is pretty much standard. The bird is simmered in water, together with other ingredients. Either the resulting stock is sieved and then used in cooking soup. Or, everything is put together into the pot at once and simmered till tender.
Chicken soup is often thought of as comfort food. It is also claimed to be the useful in treating colds and flues. Perhaps that's because it goes down so good.
There are many starch additions that can be used for poultry soups. These include pasta, noodles, rice, barley, potatoes, and dumplings.
Adding different vegetables will change the flavour. Veggies such as parsnips, sweet potatoes, celery root, cauliflower zucchini, and tomatoes are great additions.
Herbs and spices, especially parsley, dill, garlic, salt, pepper, and curry are super to use. Adding turmeric or saffron will provide a nice golden colour.
How to make soup from scratch is a skill everyone really should learn.
It's an easy way to make economical meals, as well as use up stuff that's sitting in the crisper in the fridge before it goes bad.
If you want to make your own chicken stock, then check out my recipe that's listed at the beginning of my chicken noodle soup.
I often buy chicken legs with backs attached just for making stock, simply because that's what's often on sale.
I end up with a lot of meat to put back into the soup. Or, perhaps you have left over chicken meat from another meal, then use purchased stock.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
