Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup

November 12, 2014

Don’t let the addition of the pureed zucchini scare you in this gluten free chicken noodle soup—it is very neutral in flavor and adds a bit of fiber and creaminess to this tummy-warming soup.

Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup

Get on your scarf and snow bibs. It’s cold outside! It didn’t get above 9˚F today and it’s heading to -11˚ tonight here in Colorado. On days like this I wonder how many searches for “soup recipes” Google is tallying up! I found one for a tasty looking minestrone, but the kids nixed that one. The majority vote was for this allergy-friendly Chicken Noodle Soup from Everyday Classics. I love it because it’s fast and easy. Using the meat from a rotisserie chicken saves even more time. And please don’t let the addition of the pureed zucchini scare you—it is very neutral in flavor and adds a bit of fiber and creaminess to this tummy-warming soup.

Gluten-Free Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil (I use avocado)
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped zucchini
  • 1/4 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cups water, divided
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Pinch ground turmeric, optional for color
  • 2 cups uncooked gluten-free pasta or 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 3 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken

Instructions

  1. In large pot, sauté zucchini and onion in oil over medium heat until tender.
  2. Transfer zucchini mixture to the container of a blender along with 2 cups water. Cover and purée.
  3. Add purée back to pot along with remaining 2 cups water, chicken broth, carrots, celery, granulated onion, salt, poultry seasoning, white pepper, hot sauce, bay leaf, turmeric, and uncooked pasta.
  4. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low simmer. Cover and cook just until pasta is al dente or rice is tender—taking care not to overcook.
  5. Add chicken and stir to combine. Heat through and salt to taste.

Fabulous recipe and photo, Lexie! Thanks for reminding me about this one. Son is coming home and is a bit under the weather so this soup will be perfect to serve tomorrow. 🙂 And it's cold here, too, but not that cold!
