Foodie Friday...Chicken soup with couscous

April 25, 2014

0 Comments


Chicken noodle soup is the first thing to enter people’s minds when they think comfort food. It’s hearty and warm without being overly heavy. And even in the summer, a big bowl of chicken soup can be comforting and delicious. Sometimes, however, it is a little fun to make a few tweaks to the classics. This chicken soup replaces noodles with pearl couscous for a new an unexpected twist on the old traditional soup.

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breast, trimmed of fat
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup pearl couscous
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Generously season the chicken breast with salt and pepper. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake 25 to 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
  3. While the chicken cooks, melt the butter in a large pot. Add in the garlic and cook 30 seconds until fragrant.
  4. Add the celery, carrots and onions and stir to combine. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften, about 7 minutes.
  5. Add in the stock and stir. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove to a cutting board and slice into large chunks. Add the chicken to the pot and return to a boil.
  7. While it cooks, melt 2 Tbsp. of butter in a sauce pan.
  8. Add flour and whisk to combine. It should have the consistency of a paste.
  9. Add to the pot and stir to combine. This will give the soup a bit of richness.
Stir in cooked couscous and cook an additional two minutes until completely hot throughout. Serve immediately.

This week we’re going to focus on the shops and restaurants you will find as well as “The Vessel” (New York’s answer to the Eiffel Tower) and “The Shed” (a performance and exhibition space that expands and contracts).

The Collision of Fashion and Politics?

August 18, 2019

No matter where you are in the world today, it seems one cannot escape politics. As I do not want this post to be an oxymoron, my goal is to keep it on topic - politics in fashion?. It was not that long ago, I cancelled one of my previously beloved fashion magazines (and as you read this, it wasn't American Vogue). Without thinking twice, I cited the reason being that I was a subscriber to this magazine because it used to be about fashion, now it was about fashion and politics.

The Hudson Yards, PART ONE

August 14, 2019

On April 15, 2019 a fire broke out beneath the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Since I had seen this magnificent structure in my early twenties I found this horrific news very upsetting. I was grateful that we had scheduled an outing to the recently opened Hudson Yards on the West Side of Manhattan. It was a welcome distraction because this creation of a “brand new neighborhood” was overwhelming. I have 10 pages of typed research notes that I plan to break down into bite-sized points to give you a quick overview of this astounding venture.
