There is nothing which is quite as much welcomed by someone on a weight loss regimen as soup. There is an embarrassment of variety to choose from. Today I describe how to make Chicken Noodle Soup. It is extremely filling as well as nutritious with very little fat.
Noodles add texture to the soup that makes it appealing. Not only is it good for weight loss but also easy to slurp down if you have a terrible cold. It is not only delicious but great comfort food. Easy to make and consisting of very few ingredients a soup is ideal for those who have a busty schedule.

Method of Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
Peel the ginger.
Bring a pan of water, chicken broth cubes, ginger and soy sauce to the boil. Cook the chicken fillet in the stock for approximately 12 minutes remove the chicken fillet from the pan and cut the chicken fillet into pieces.
Halve the snow peas.
Remove the stalks from the shiitake and cut the shiitake into slices.
Remove the ginger from the broth. Add the snow peas, shiitake, and noodles to the broth and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the bean sprouts and chicken and cook for 1 minute. Season the soup with a little freshly ground pepper.
Halve the lime and squeeze one half above the pan. Cut the other half into segments.
Heat a pan and roast the cashew nuts for about 3 minutes.
Finely chop the coriander and stir into the soup.
Pour the soup into soup bowls/soup plates and divide the cashew nuts, coriander, and the fried onions over it. Serve with a slice of lime.
A word of caution – it is usual to use chicken broth cubes or bouillon cubes for making soups quickly.
However, they contain a large amount of salt and might include some monosodium glutamate (depending on the brand). It is always better to make your own broth and store it in the fridge for later use.
