Chicken Soup with Lemon Grass


Een van mijn absoluut favoriete kruiden is Lemon grass. Vroeger moest je er voor naar eens peciaalzaak gaan, maar nu verkopen de meeste supermarkten vers citroengras.

Submitted by: Kara Tawa

Prep Time: 30-40 minute prep time
3 hours cook time
Serving Size: 8

Ingredients:
Whole chicken(5-6 lbs)
Bag of Carrots
2 Onions
2 celery
2 parsnips
Parsley
Dill
Lemon Grass

Directions:
Remove anything thats inside the chicken(heart, liver, neck).
Wash the chicken thoroughly inside and out.
Put it in a large soup pot.
Make enough lemon grass tea to cover chicken.
Add neck, heart, liver if you want for taste.
Bring water to boil and skim off scum on top.
Reduce to a simmer.
Peel and cut onions, parsnips, carrots and celery.
Add to pot.
Wash parsley.
Cut 1/2-1 cup into the pot.
Add sea salt and pepper to taste.
Add additional lemon grass if you want a really lemon grass taste.
Cover pot, cook on simmer for 3 hours.
At the last 30 minutes add the dill.
When soup is done remove the bones and skin from the chicken.
You can do this by straining the soup over a colander with a large bowl under it.
Adjust salt and pepper for taste.

Enjoy!
