2 cups mixed vegetables (fresh, canned, or frozen)

- Wash hands with soap and water.
- For noodles: Put flour in a medium bowl, make a well in center, and add eggs. Mix well. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough is stiff but easy to roll.
- Place dough on a floured surface. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness using a rolling pin or a sturdy, straight sided drinking glass or jar.
- Cut into 1/4 to 1/2-inch strips, about 3 to 5 inches long. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
- For soup: In a large pot on medium-high heat, bring water and chicken broth to a boil.
- Add noodles a few at a time to broth mixture and return soup to a boil.
- Add chicken, vegetables, and pepper. Simmer for 12 to 15 minutes or until noodles are tender. Serve warm.
- Refrigerate or freeze within 2 hours.
- Broth can be homemade, canned or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
- Try whole wheat flour to include whole grains.
- Freeze extra for another meal.
We made this soup in culinary classes this month and participants of all ages loved it! Whole wheat pastry flour worked fabulously for the noodles and added increased nutritional value:) We sautéed the chicken with garlic and onion (use lots!) for more flavor and added thyme to the soup as well. Such a satisfying meal on a cold day!
