Chicken Ginger Soup with Vegetables

The best part of this soup is the freshly grated ginger roots, the chilli and the broth. I used homemade turkey broth (stock). Make sure you get some good quality broth (stock). For vegetables I used potatoes, turnips, carrots and peas. You can vary the vegetables the way you want.

Heat the olive oil over medium low heat and sauté the onions, bell pepper, ginger and garlic for about 8 minutes until soft.

Add the curry powder or paprika and chilli flakes and cook one minute.

Add the mixed veggies and all purpose flour and cook another minute.

Add 5 cups stock and simmer ten minutes. Then add the rice and cook another 10-15 minutes or until rice is cooked.

Add the chicken and peas in the last five minutes of cooking. Adjust seasoning (salt and pepper) and thickness of soup.

Add the cilantro and serve hot.
