Catching Points - a food blog

I love soup but ever since my son came into the picture about 2½ years ago i haven´t made that much soup. This morning when watching my beloved BBCfood some chef made a soup which made me decide that i would to.

Nigella´s Noodle Soup

500ml chicken stock (good quality instant or canned fine) (i used a stock cube)
1 chicken breast 150g cut into strips across
1 tablespoon soy sauce
30g baby corn, cut into 2.5cm pieces
250g fresh or ready-cooked udon noodles
50g sugar snap peas
50g Fine beans

Heat the chicken stock in a saucepan.

In a frying pan, cook the strips of chicken without any oil until they have lost their rawness, and then add the soy sauce to the hot pan of chicken letting it bubble down a little before tipping into the hot stock.

Bring the pan to the boil and add the baby corn, noodles, sugar snaps and fine beans cut in half.

Let the pan come back up to boiling point and let it cook for a minute or so, so that the noodles are warmed through and the vegetables tender.
Serves 2

I doubled the recepy since we are 3 people eating at home. According to my calculations one portion of the soup is 3,5 points or if you want more noodles 5 points. Sorry for the bad lighting in the picture, new to the world of digital cameras :)
