This is a wonderful, feel good soup which is extremely healthy and nourishing.  It has been described to me 'like a hug in a bowl' - perfect for any day but especially when feeling under the weather.

It's very simple so I hope you give it a try and I'd love to hear about it in the comments.



1. Gently poach the chicken breasts in a pot with water, peppercorns, some salt and ginger slices for about 15-20 mins. Allow to cool and chop into small cubes.
2. In a large pot, add the water, stock cubes, carrots, shallots, garlic, minced ginger, celery and bring to a boil for about 10-12 mins or until the carrots are becoming tender.  Lower to a simmer.
3. Add in the cornflour and water mix and stir to combine. Add in the dried herbs and season with salt and pepper.
4. Add in the broken spaghetti and reduce to a simmer for 3 mins then add in the chicken and chopped scallions.
5. Finally, check for seasoning and serve with some fresh scallions on top.
