"The Best Chicken Soup in America"

Rosely Himmelstein�s winning recipe from Shabbat Across America�s Chicken Soup Challenge

(Serves about 6)

INGREDIENTS

• 2 quarts of chicken broth (the recipe follows)

• 1 chicken (about 3-4 pounds), quartered (I prefer a regular chicken to a fowl); rinsed

• 1 large carrot, peeled and cup up

• 1 large onion, peeled and cup up

• 1 stalk celery

• 1 leek, white and light green parts only; washed well

• 1 parsnip, peeled and cut up

• 1 parsley root, with greens attached

• 1 sweet potato, peeled

• a handful of dill (about 3-4 stems)

• 1 small rutabaga, peeled and cut up

• a few sprigs of cilantro (optional)

• Salt and pepper to taste

Put chicken broth in pot; bring to boil.

Add chicken. Return to boil; lower heat.

Gently simmer uncovered for 1 hour.

Add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for one-half hour more; stir occasionally.

Skim fat from top.

Pour into bowls; into each add a slice of carrot and a sprig of cilantro.

If storing, let soup cool before refrigerating. When cold, remove the fat that
rises to the surface. Use soup within 2-3 days, or store in freezer.

Sounds absolutely delicious! Also good to see an authentic Jewish dish as opposed to ones like fallafel which have been stolen from the Palestinians- along with everything else

Great, Yvetta, and to that add some pearl barley and green lentils and you won't need to eat anything else for the day.

Yvetta, chicken soup is a typical Jewish recipe from the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe. In Iraq our Jewish community(before the Arabs murdered us and kicked us out) used to have a delicious traditional Jewish dish called Kuba Bamya - check this link http://shemtovtaamtov.wordpress.com/2007/10/01/kuba-bamya/
