Macaroni Soup

26 Sep

As you can see, I do love my PASTA! I can eat it in so many ways but having it with soup takes it to another level altogether. A great comfort food when one is feeling under the weather.

Dig in, folks 😉

Ingredients

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 100 – 200 gm minced beef
  • 10 medium grey prawns, deshelled and leave the tail intact
  • 5 crab sticks, sliced in 3 pieces
  • 3 celery sticks, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 carrot, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 big red onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 litre water
  • Spring onion, finely chopped

Directions

Cook the macaroni according to the directions on the package, for 10 minutes. Drain well.

Blend the onion, garlic and ginger with 100 ml water. In a pot, add three tablespoons of oil and saute the blended ingredients until fragrant. Add the chicken stock and minced beef. Once the meat is cooked, add the water.

Season the broth with salt, sugar and white pepper. Add the carrot and celery and let it simmer over medium heat for about 5 – 10 minutes. Finally add the prawns and crab sticks and let it simmer for another 5 minutes. Just scoop a handful of macaroni into a bowl and pour the soup over it. Serve the bowl of Macaroni Soup with chopped spring onion.
