I’m posting this recipe for Free Chickens Soup in tribute to our Amandine, Clementine, Hikaru, Orion, Jason, Jewel, Joy, Phoenix, Phoebe, Beatrice, Coriander, Hypatia, Nutmeg, Harumi, Kotori, Tolstoy, Da vinci, Trudy, Annabel, Bibi, Autumn, and our never to be forgotten Guinevere, and to all chickens everywhere who suffer and die for someone’s cup of soup or omelet.
Chicken free soup is better for us and best for the chickens.

Free Chickens Soup
4 cups vegetable stock
2 cups thinly sliced, chicken-style seitan
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup diced onions
2 teaspoons ground sage
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 bay leaves
1 cup linguine, broken into small pieces, or any other kind of pasta. I like to use small shells
Combine the vegetable stock, seitan, celery, carrots, onions, sage, thyme, and bay leaves in a slow cooker on low for 6 to 8 hours. About 30 minutes (time depends on what kind of pasta you choose) before serving, add the linguine to the slow cooker and stir well. Turn the cooker on high and cook until the noodles are tender. Remove the bay leaves before serving.
