Here is a chicken and mushroom soup recipe with wide egg noodles and green peas in a creamy dill broth. And it's sooo delicious!

Why Is It Called Dill Weed?

Dill, a member of the carrot family, is native to southwest Asia and India. It has very delicate, fern-like leaves which we use as an herb and seeds which we use as a spice. 

To differentiate between the two, recipes use the term dill weed when referring to basically the fresh or dried leaves. I say basically, because dill weed includes seeds blended in with the leaves.


Since fresh dill is easy to find in our markets only during the summer and early fall, I chose dried dill weed for this recipe. It is delightfully available throughout the year!


May the romance of soup making bring you peacefulness - like snow glittering in the moonlight.
