Low FODMAP chicken noodle soup
Noodle soup reminds me of my vacation in Vietnam where we ate noodle soup almost every day. Even though this noodle soup looks nothing like traditional Vietnamese pho, I still love it.
This slow cooker chicken noodle soup is great for cold days when you don’t feel like cooking. I also think it’s a perfect recipe for days when you’re not feeling well.
Nothing better than a noodle soup with chicken to regain your strength. This is a light recipe, but the noodles it contains make it very filling.
In the morning you put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and turn it on. In the evening your delicious soup is ready.
This recipe first came online in 2015. In January 2022, this recipe was modified and updated.
I chose to add carrot and a mix of oyster mushrooms and mushrooms to this soup. But you can also use other low FODMAP vegetables that you like.
For example, think of:
- Bok choy
- Bell pepper
- The green part of leek
This soup is ideal for using up leftover vegetables.
Noodle soup from the slowcooker
I make this soup in my slow cooker. I am really a fan of this device. Because you cook the soup slowly, the flavours are infused extra well. This results in a soup that is just a bit tastier than when you make it in a regular pan.
I have a multi cooker myself, this is a multifunctional pan that, in addition to a slow cooker function, also has a pressure cooker function. For example, you can quickly prepare rice dishes, such as risottos and meat dishes.
The multi cooker I use is the CrockPot Express 6 Quart.
You can also purchase a separate slow cooker, which I used before I bought my multi cooker.
Storing the noodle soup
Place the soup in a plastic sealable container. Let cool with the lid off. Then seal the container and put it in the fridge. The soup will stay good for 2 days.
You can also freeze the soup, then the soup will keep for about 3 months. It is best not to add the noodles to the soup yet and freeze the soup without the noodles.
If you are going to eat the soup, you can prepare the noodles separately by placing them in a pan of boiled water for 2 minutes. Then you can add them to the soup.
You can put the soup in the fridge a day in advance to thaw or put it on the counter. You can then heat the soup in a pan or in the microwave.
