I’m sick. Blah! I’ve got a cough, scratchy throat, headache, etc., etc. Not fun, but it did give me the opportunity to try something new. I didn’t feel much like cooking last night, and I put out an appeal to friends on Facebook for some ideas to help me get through this misery. A few people gave the old “hot toddy” remedy, but I wasn’t too keen on that, but my friend Rachel, suggested miso soup. I had some miso boullion in my cupboard so I decided to make some for lunch today.
I added a 1/2 cube of the miso to two cups of boiling water in a pot and then tossed in the following:
1 carrot, speed-peeled and chopped
1/4 beet grated
2 cremini mushrooms, sliced
the end of a bag of frozen edamame
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
some Bragg’s herb mix
extra red chili flakes …
I had made some Gardein veggie burgers for supper last night because they were quick and easy, and to top them, I’d stir-fried 1/2 a red onion, sliced, 1 gala apple, chopped and about a cup of frozen kale, along with some herbs and freshly ground black pepper.There was some of this mixture still in the fridge, so I chucked it into the soup.
When I tasted it, it needed salt, so I ground in some pink Himalayan salt and added about a Tbsp. of Bragg’s soy sauce.
It works! ( I won’t go into detail, but I’m feeling better already!)
If you’re under the weather with a cold, or the flu, try this soup; you’ll feel better too!
