AS you may already know I’ve been suffering with a head cold this week.
It should be illegal to get sick in the summer!
But to cope with it I made the best sickness fighting soup I’ve ever concocted.
Last winter my husband and I were both sick and cranky and needed some really good chicken soup but we felt like something a little more exciting… and hot!
This is what happened.
1 head of garlic and
1 large onion and
1 large chunk of ginger.
In a large saucepan we added a shlook of peanut, sesame and chili oil.
In went the garlic, onions and ginger to saute for about 2 minutes.
2 bunches of green onions were sliced and added.
1 tbsp of red curry paste, or roasted red chili paste and
1 heaping tbsp of black bean and garlic sauce were also added.
Everything gets stirred around to a lovely sticky mess and then add
5 cups of homemade chicken stock and
a dash of salt and pepper.
Bring this to a boil. Then add
3 cups baby bok choy sliced.
Allow to boil for 2ish minutes to semi-cook the bok choy and meld everything together.
Serve piping hot and enjoy!
A friendly word of warning: You may choke and sputter and your nose will run like a tap but you’ll feel great. We promise :)
Oh, we call it…
