Traditional chicken soup

A traditional Romanian soup, very easy and very healthy. It is my favourite soup and is delicious.  

  • 2 big chicken breasts
  • 1/4 of a big celery root
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 150g frozen or fresh peas
  • 150g green beans
  • 5 potatoes
  • 2-3 hands of noodles
  • 2 chicken cubes (like Knor)
1. Torn apa in oala de presiune (9L) pana se umple cam jumatate si-o pun pe foc la maxim.
2. Toc pieptul in cuburi si-l pun in oala, apoi inchid oala, asptept ca supapa sa indice ajungerea la presiunea si temperatura de fierbere. Din acel moment, inchid supapa, dau focul la jumatate si las 15 min la fiert.
3. Toc morcovii, ardeiul, telina si rosiile cubulete. Fasolea o tai in bucati cam de 2cm lungime. Cartofii ii tai in cuburi mai mari, ca pentru ciorba.
4. Cand carnea a fiert (au trecut cele 15 min) scot presiunea din oala si desfac oala. Pun taiteii, cuburile de condimente si toate legumele taiate, inclusiv mazarea.
5. Inchid oala la loc si las sa fiarba 10 min (dupa ce oala incepe sa fiarba). Asta e tot.

Nu e nevoie neaparat de oala cu presiune pentru aceasta ciorba. Se poate foarte bine folosi si o oala normala, dar in oala cu presiune legumele se pastreaza intregi si-si pastreaza mai bine si vitaminele. Alte oale de presiune s-ar putea sa aiba alte instructiuni, asadar, cititi manualul inainte.

In farfurie adaug patrunjel tocat, felii de ardei iute si zeama de lamaie dupa gust.

  1. Fill half of a pressure cooker (mine is 9L) with water and start heating it open.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts into cubes and put them into the pressure cooker. Then close it and wait to indicate that the valve of the pressure cooker has reached the boiling point. When this happens, close the valve, reduce heat to half and let boil for 15 minutes 
  3. During this time, dice the carrots, peppers, celery and tomatoes. Cut the green beans into pieces around 2cm long. Cut potatoes in larger cubes than the other vegetables.
  4. When the meat is cooked (15 min has passed), remove the pressure from the cooker through the valve and open the pot. Add inside the noodles, chickens cubes, and all cut vegetables including peas.
  5. Close back the pressure cooker pot and let it simmer for 10 minutes, after the pot begins to boil . That's all.It is not necessary to have a pressure cooker for this soup . It works very well using a normal pot, but in the pressure cooker and vegetables are keeping their shapes, and they keep their vitamins . Other pressure pots may have other instructions, so please read the manual.When serving, add chopped parsley, sliced ​​chilli and lemon juice to taste.
