- Meanwhile take two nice heads of celery, one carrot, one parsnip and some champignon mushrooms and cut them in longish thin pieces.
- When the fowl is half cooked add these vegetables and some salt.
- Put parsley, peppercorns and some ginger into a linen muslin bag a and put the bag into the soup.
- Cook till the meat is quite tender.
- Meanwhile make some noodle dough, cut it into very fine noodles, drop these into boiling water to which some salt has been added.

Substitute fine, flat pasta for the noodles if you do not wish to make your own. Also use chicken stock for a stronger flavour. Add half a small cabbage and a few runner beans if you wish. --JuliaBalbilla 11:13, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
