We offer this feel-good soup frequently at our Hot Bar and many have asked for the recipe. It's perfect for those long winter nights when all you need is a warm, comforting soup to brighten things up. For a delicious vegetarian version, use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock and replace the chicken with seitan, chickpeas, or any other favored substitute.
Heat oil on medium heat.
Add carrots and onions and cook until onions are translucent and softened, about 15 minutes.
Add celery, stock, thyme, and bay leaf.
Bring to a simmer and cook until the vegetables are tender.
Add whole chicken breast and simmer 12-15 minutes. Remove breast, slice and return to soup.
Cook elbow pasta separately in boiling salted water. Drain and add to soup. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Season to taste.
Add parsley before serving.
