One Last Taste of Summer


2 TB vegetable oil
1 med. Onion thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 poblano or Anaheim peppers, seeded and julienned
1 or 2 cayenne peppers, whole (remove before serving)
Salt and pepper
2 carrots, shredded
1 stalk celery, sliced very thin
6 cups chicken broth
1 ½ pound cooked boneless, skinless chicken—cut into bite sized pieces (I microwave the chicken and cut it up after it's cooked.)
Chinese noodles (one bundle)
3 TB fresh parsley, chopped
15 fresh basil leaves, rough chopped (I use less)
1 lime

Heat a large heavy bottomed soup pot with vegetable oil over high heat. Sautee vegetables in oil 2 minutes. Add carrot and chicken broth. Cover with lid and bring to a simmer. Add chicken, simmer 5 minutes, then add noodles and simmer 5 minutes more. Remove soup from heat and add the herbs and the juice of 1 lime. Remove cayenne peppers.

This is fragrant soup is a favorite around our home. Fresh herbs and the lime juice make it very bright and summery.

Hi there, Kim.

I'm digging around in your archives today. I think it's called 'avoiding reading Ulysses in my mid-session break. This looks delicious! I loooove Thai and chilli and lime, especially when it is combined with chicken. Yum!

I am lamenting summer as the days are getting cooler down here.

...I wonder if you will get this message considering the fact that you don't use this blog anymore.

Try this soup. It is fabulous. So fragrant!

I forget that your seasons are opposite ours!
