Chicken, green beans and tomato stoup
The term 'stoup' I first heard on Rachel Ray show and she explains it as it's something between soup and stew. Too thick to call it soup and too thin to call it stew... So take any name that suits you... But I really liked this 'thing' and it really wasn't just soup, we ate it as a main dish just with garlic bread toast!!! Perfect!!!
What we need:
200 gr of boiled or roasted chicken ( leftovers again!)
about 10 green beans cut into three pieces
1 red and green pepper
a bunch of basil leaves
4-5 cloves of chopped garlic
2 tbsp of tomato paste
1,5 l of chicken stock or water
salt and pepper
What we have to do:
1. Clean and cut green beans into smaller pieces, chop onion and peeled potato. Add into a saucepan, drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil and fry for 4-5 min. Add some salt and pepper.
2. Add bell pepper and chicken stock. Simmer for 5 more minutes.
3. Add chicken pieces and chopped tomatoes. Simmer for 2-3 min. Then add tomato paste and basil leaves, and garlic. Simmer for 2 min again. And serve!!! Great with garlic bread ( mix garlic with butter, spread over bread and toast in the oven until light brown), but then use less garlic in stoup! Enjoy!!!
