Every year I tweak my chicken soup recipe. Full of Asian flavours, this quick and easy soup has become a midweek favourite. Look out for really good dumplings, available from specialty shops and Asian supermarkets.
This is a soup that will warm you through and through. If you& in a hurry, use tinned chickpeas. Alternatively, you can also make this soup with cooked white beans, borlotti beans or lentils. Cooked short pasta makes a welcome addition, too.
