two minute soup

Why do I call it Two Minute Soup?
Cus it takes about 2 minutes to make.
And it will be gone in 2 minutes, too!

I use a soup starter/ base... like a thick bullion.
Any stock will do!

Start with water in a pot, of course. Add
Cayenne, onions, garlic, and chives.
Add both Chicken and Beef 
Add Tamari, Fish Sauce, Rice Vinegar and Sesame Oil.
Or whatever you like!

This measuring spoon set says
"Hint" "Smidge" "Pinch" and a "Drop"
From the Container Store (link)

Turn a spoon upside down and drop the egg onto it
to diffuse it better. Or you can use egg-beaters.

I added chicken to mine, for extra protein.
Right before serving, add Parmesan Cheese.

So good, my neighbor said 
it would "snatch you bald-headed!"
A couple of people wanted to keep the recipe
on it's own page - Enjoy!


  1. Here is a wacky idea. Get a Chicken, 4 pounder, for $5.00. Toss the whole thing in a pot, a little salt, pepper, maybe some herbs and some of the seasonings you show.. Cover the bird with water and turn on the stove.. Boil for 5 minutes, and then lower heat to simmer... In an hour and a half, turn off heat and let it cool.. When cool, take out chicken, and veggies.. Let soup cool overnight in fridge. Pull off chicken meat and use for whatever you want, throw out bones. Skim fat off cooled soup next day and throw out or use if you are making taters. Portion the 2 gallons of soup into 5 ounce baggies and freeze. Use when needed, keeps for 2 years in freezer. Healthy, controlled and not chemicals !!! And cheap...

  2. Sounds good, Anne. Allan's recipe does too. I LOVE chicken soup.

  3. Technically, any soup is two-minute soup if you move fast enough...

  4. You had me until the egg went in. I like AlmostGastricBypass' idea. Chicken soup. mmmm

  5. I like YOURS, Anne!
    Save me some - I'll be right over!

  6. hummm been a while since I had me some soup!!!

  7. Two minutes to boil a chicken? I think not.
    Realistically, I likes yours, too, Anne.
    In a perfect world, I would make my own stock every day.
    In the real world, I do good to stay away from fast food -
    and make something that's yummy!
    Not gourmet, just good simple food!


I would love to hear from you!
