I love this shredded chicken and carrot noodle soup!
The KitchenAid Spiralizer attachment for my stand mixer mini is a fascinating tool. Thanks KitchenAid Europe for the gift!
The first day that it arrived in the mail, I just couldn’t wait to try it out. I started off by attaching whatever fruit or vegetable I could find laying around in my fridge and pantry.
Same routine: I would set the speed low and just see what would happen with it. Learn, clean up and start again.
And I can assure you that it’s also a fun thing to watch!
Shredded Chicken & Carrot Noodle Soup
Here is my video of how I’m making carrot noodles with my Spiralizer attachment.
And I’m preparing the rest of this delicious chicken carrot soup in my fabulous KitchenAid Cook Processor. You can find the full ingredient list and step by step recipe description below, just scroll down
No need to tell you that you can’t slice or grate just anything because some things are way too soft or mushy to cut into thin ribbons.
Stick to vegetable such as beets, carrots, potatoes and zucchini for instance. Tomatoes are also a bit of a disaster because they are too soft.
And what about fruits then? Apples also work well. I think I’ll be trying out kiwifruit and dragonfruit next week too!
I kept the other ingredients in this carrot noodle and chicken soup very simple. You can also add carrot noodles to other vegetable soups, salads and even stir fries.
Enough recipe ideas to keep me going for a while!
