I am a firm believer in soup. It’s amazing. I think it has a lot of healing qualities, depending on the ingredients.
I haven’t been feeling too well, so utilizing some leftover pork in the fridge and ingredients I have in my kitchen, I made super healthy and delicious soup that drop kicked the cold that I had in the face.
Lazy/Sick Day Soup(Gluten-Free, Low Sodium)
1 cup dry rice noodles, per serving
low sodium broth, however much YOU like, chicken, vegetable, whatever you have on hand
1 tsp ginger
herbs(your favorite, i used a few leaves each basil and cilantro)
thinly sliced onion, to taste
whatever else you want to throw in there…boiled egg, meat, veggies
Easy ingredients, right? I only use one pot to make this. Bring water to a boil and cook your noodles until done. Remove from heat, promptly strain and place the noodles straight into your bowl. Put the pot right back on the heat and bring your broth up to a simmer(Mine was already hot because it is perpetually cooking) and then toss in your herbs, cut up or ripped up or whole…whatever you like and diced ginger. I let that simmer while I grab my other ingredients, in this case I sliced my onion and placed it directly in the bowl with my noodles and got the leftover shredded pork out of the fridge and tossed it in the pot. Give it a swirl, make sure everything is heated through and just pour it on top of the noodles and onion in your bowl. Super quick meal that is very satisfying and has a ton of flavor. I made this when I was sick as a dog yesterday, so it’s not hard at all. Promise.
