Tropical Mango and Chicken with Spinach Soup


Chef Ryan Muir,
Soup Pierre

The surprisingly light mango broth is subtly sweet and accents the changing tastes. Each sip produces a different flavour: sweet pineapple; bulby onion; savoury chicken and tangy tomato. Either fresh or frozen mango works well in this recipe. The stems of lemongrass are tough and inedible. Finely chop the bottom few inches of the tender grass to use as flavour. Alternatively, purchase in concentrate at specialty food stores.
