Tips for making this Lasagna Soup with Chicken

  • I work through this recipe while prepping and cooking ingredients simultaneously to save time. What I mean by that is that I cook the ground chicken in a large pan over medium heat while I peel and chop the onion, ginger, and garlic. Then, I remove the chicken from the pan and add in the onion, ginger, and garlic. While these are sautéing, I prep the celery and open the canned tomatoes and fire-roasted tomatoes.
  • Sautéing the onion, ginger, and garlic for a few minutes, until the onions are translucent, adds so much flavor to this dish.
  • I used lasagna pasta sheets that I broke up into bits. However, you could use any pasta you prefer.
  • This soup is thick and creamy – without any cheese or heavy cream, I may add. And, as it sits, it gets thicker and creamier as the noodles seem to absorb the liquid. So, you could do one of 2 things. One, cook the pasta separately and add it only to the bowl you will be eating. Or, two, add in more liquid every time you reheat this up. Also, if you would rather the soup be thinner, use 1 cup of chicken stock.

Substitutions

  • Instead of ground chicken, ground turkey or even vegan crumbles could be used. You could also use chopped-up white meat chicken.
  • I have been using grapeseed oil in high-heat sautéing. However, if you have olive oil or hand or any other oil, please use that instead.
  • If you do not have any coriander, cumin, smoked paprika, or turmeric on hand, then feel free to use Italian seasoning or any combination of your favorite seasonings. While I have only tried this recipe with the ingredients listed, substitutions, (within reason) can be made and enjoyed.
  • If you are gluten-free, you can use any gluten-free pasta instead of the lasagna pasta sheets I used.
  • While I used coconut milk, if you are not trying to avoid dairy, then use heavy cream instead of coconut milk.
