The last 15 minutes of this soup sees the addition of sliced mushrooms, a handful of fresh green beans and the soup noodles. It's finished with fresh dill. Sometimes I add a squeeze of lemon right before serving to brighten up the flavors.

Here you go:

4 medium-size leeks (white and light green part only), quartered and diced
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2 medium carrots, peeled and finely chopped
3 ribs celery, finely chopped
2 tsps kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 quarts chicken stock
1 cup dry white wine (1/2 cup dry vermouth will do in a pinch)
2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 medium-size mushroom, cleaned, thinly sliced
2 cups egg noodles
4 oz green beans, ends trimmed, cut diagonally to 1"
3 Tbsps fresh dill, chopped fine

Keeping root intact, slice leeks lengthwise in quarters and rinse until sand/dirt is removed. Slice into fine dice.

Melt butter in large heavy saucepan over medium-low heat. Add leeks, carrots, celery salt and pepper. Saute for 5 minutes, remove from heat.

Bring chicken stock and wine to boiling in a stockpot. Add chicken. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove chicken and let cool.

Add dry egg noodles to stock, simmer for 6 minutes.

Add leek mixture and green beans to stock. Simmer uncovered over low heat for 5 minutes. Shred cooled chicken breasts while beans are cooking.

Add shredded chicken and mushrooms to stock and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.

Take soup off heat. Add chopped dill and a squeeze of lemon just before serving.

The gift-wrapped package was a handy prop. It was a gift for my brother Arthur that was so obvious and appropriate that I had to withdraw it at the last minute, because it turned out my older brother David had already given it to him! It's a book, How the States Got Their Shapes.

Arthur is a geography whiz who in the 8th grade could draw the entire United States map from memory, with all the state outlines and the capitals correctly identified. He later invented a game called Geo-Rummy.

The basket is from my late father's basket collection.
