    Default What I did with my leftover chicken soup

    I had chicken soup with homemade egg noodles left over from dinner
    last night. Today I added chopped red onion, a significant pinch of
    rubbed sage and some extra black pepper, then boiled it for about
    10-12 minutes. Reminiscent of turkey dressing. The egg noodles--made
    with unbleached flour, whole egg and a little baking powder--were
    almost al dente last night, but today they were softer and really
    nice. I'm lucky I only had one bowl left or I would have gotten
    myself stuffed. Anyone else add baking powder to egg noodles?

    Flour, salt, eggs, tiny bit of oil, water. Nope, no baking powder
    comes to hand. Does it improve them, do you think? -aem

    I'm not a pasta expert by any means, but I haven't heard of adding
    baking powder to noodle dough. Can't think of any noodle that's
    fluffy.

    It doesn't go anywhere near fluffy, but does make them softer, and I
    think they absorb more of the flavor of the broth. Flour and eggs are
    cheap enough that it might be worth trying. I think I used about a
    cup of flour and a t of baking powder (I eyeballed it) and two large
    eggs.
