Polish broth with a pinch of innovation
September is showing us how autumn in Poland can look like. Evenings are getting colder, it rains a lot and summer dresses are no longer a good option for wearing. Yesterday Bartek got cold, so I cooked a warming soup for him: one of Polish classics – ROSÓŁ (a Polish warming broth). It’s a perfect option when you get a cold. I always make rosół with handmade lane noodles. It is a soup which can bring you back to life just in a couple of minutes!

NOTE: In classic rosół you won’t find any ginger, chilli flakes and soy sauce – this is my innovation. I hope you will like it!



a set of fresh vegetables
3 carrots
1-2 parsley (a root)
1 leek ( just the white part of it)
1/2 celery
fresh parsley leafs
4 chicken legs
2 cm fresh ginger
2 tbsp light soy sauce
lane noodles
2 eggs
4-6 tbsp white flour
a pinch of salt
1 good quality stock cube
black peppercorns
few corns allspice
4-5 bay leafs
a pinch of chili flakes

Wash the chicken legs and put them in a big pot filled with cold water. Boil the meat for about 1 hour. When some “froth” will be visible on the surface of water simply remove it with a spoon.

In the meantime peel off the vegetables and ginger. Add them all to the pot with chicken legs. You may pour some more water if necessary.

Now it’s time to add all the spices. I don’t use any salt – it is already in both stock cube and soy sauce. Boil the soup on a very low heat for another hour. The taste will become stronger with every minute.

At the end strain the broth through a sieve. The soup should be clear. Now bring it to boil.

You will make real homemade lane noodles. Blend the eggs with the flour and a pinch of salt.

The consistency should be similar to a pancake batter. Pour small amounts of the mixture on boiling broth. The lane noodles should be ready in 2 min.

Now turn off the heat. Cut some cooked carrot into small cubes and add it to the soup. Try the broth and add some more spices if needed.

Pour “rosól” into bowls and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. This soup will make you feel warm and calm!
