Ingredients

  • 400g skinless chicken breasts or boneless thighs, chopped into chunks

  • 2 large leeks, sliced
  • 200g carrots, sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, plus extra to garnish

Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients into the pan of the Remoska Tria. Fit the SoftPressure lid into position, following the instructions in the manual.
  2. Place the Remoska on the hob over a high heat, until there is a steady flow of steam coming from the pressure valve. Immediately turn the heat to low and cook for 25 minutes.
  3. Using an oven glove, remove the SoftPressure lid following the instructions. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve, sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley.

Tip: If you’d like a thicker soup, blend 1 tbsp cornflour with 2-3 tbsp cold water and stir into the finished soup, cooking gently over a low heat on the hob for a minute or two.
