We first take whole chickens and simmer them with basic soup veg (carrots, celery, leeks, onions) until chickens and veg have imparted their wholesome goodness to the stock.
We then start the soup afresh, with new vegetables and the freshly made broth. Just before dishing up, we throw in a handful of risoni - small rice-shaped soup pasta - the shredded chicken meat and a load of baby spinach. The result is an old-fashioned, sweet, gentle soup that nourishes all the bits it can reach and even those it can't.
