Mandy’s got a cold, and there is nothing more comforting, in my opinion, than chicken soup, so here’s the recipe:-

  • 1 Litre chicken stock
  • 2 eggs
  • half a leek – chopped
  • 20g cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon of chopped ginger
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. gently fry the garlic and ginger in the sesame oil for about 4 minutes
  2. Put the cornflour in a glass and slowly add a little stock and stir to make a paste, add about 50ml more until you have a liquid consistency – set this aside for later.
  3. Add the rest of the stock to the ginger and garlic and bring to the boil.
  4. Add the leaks
  5. Whisk the eggs and a bit at a time add it to the boiling stock – keep stirring the stock in the same direction until the egg solidifies.
  6. Serve.
