I looked outside this morning and it was a beautiful sunny day.  Said I to myself, "Good day for a walk!" I checked my Weather Bug however, and discovered it was 7 degrees F out there with a -7 degrees F windchill.  Quickly I changed course and decided to spend some time in the kitchen warming up the house with something good.  Hot sounded really good today.

If you have my recipe book, "Low-Carbing Among Friends," Vol. 2, you'll find my recipe for "Egg Noodles or Crepes" on p. 215 of the book, which I used in this recipe, or you may use zucchini noodles if you prefer, or even shredded cabbage.  All make great noodles.

CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP                    

1/2 Egg noodle or crepe recipe
32  ounces  chicken stock -- (organic or homemade)
10  ounces  canned chicken -- (or use left over chicken or turkey)
1/4 cup  chopped onion
1 small  carrot -- shredded
1 stalk  celery -- chopped
1/2 cup  green pepper -- chopped
1 tablespoon  minced garlic
1 teaspoon  sea salt
1/2 teaspoon  basil
1/2 teaspoon  thyme
1/2 teaspoon  onion powder
1/8 teaspoon  cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons  cold water
1 envelope  knox gelatine, unflavored

Cut egg noodles out of "Egg Noodles or Crepes" recipe, (OR you can use zucchini noodles, or shredded cabbage - nutrition info will vary).  Set aside.

In large pot, add chicken stock, chicken, (OR turkey), onion, carrot, celery, green pepper, garlic, salt, basil, thyme, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.

Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.  While soup is simmering, in small cup, add cold water and sprinkle gelatine over the top and let it dissolve.

After soup has simmered 15 minutes, add gelatine mixture and stir.  Add noodles to soup and simmer 1 more minute.
