More About This Recipe
  • One of the most important components in a perfect chicken noodle soup is the mirepoix. Also called the “holy trinity,” mirepoix is a mixture of chopped onions, carrots and celery used to add flavor to stocks, broths and soups. This easy chicken noodle soup recipe calls for a frozen bag of these veggies, but you can also use fresh produce if you have more time. The general rule is to add a 2:1:1 ratio of onions, carrots and celery. Other cuisines use a version of mirepoix in their soups as well. It’s the base of some soups in the south; Louisiana gumbos also call for onions and celery, but swap out carrots and use green bell pepper instead. In Italian cuisine, soffrito starts with onion, carrots and celery, but also sometimes features chopped parsley, garlic or even cured meats. Now that you know what makes a good base for a delicious soup, try more chicken soups next. Then, make them taste even better with our foolproof tips and tricks.
