Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

It is perfect comfort food with or without the noodles.

Coconut Chicken Soup

To have a truly great soup you need a great stock. There are some good gluten free stocks in the shops, but you can't beat making your own. Much more nutritious and tastier too.

It is also a great way to make use of left over carcasses, making a whole bird a lot more economical.

Free Range or preferably Organic chicken (often there isn't that much of a price difference between the two) is the best to use if you can afford it. 

gluten free chicken stock makes all your soups even tastier and more nutritious too

Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe - Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 6 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 1 leek
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 sticks celery
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt (himalayan pink is our first choice)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut milk (or substitute some of the stock for coconut milk if you prefer)
  • 200g kelp or sweet potato noodles

  • 3 cups of pulled chicken

Coconut Chicken Soup - Instructions

  1. Cut your vegetables into large chunks.
