For some reason, my immune system has been fighting me recently.
I feel like I’ve been collecting colds like they’re pogs and it’s 1996.
Really, this is no surprise. When I stay up late, go out and have cocktails night after night and don’t take time to recharge the proverbial batteries it’s not a shock that I haven’t been feeling 100%.
After a long weekend of good old fashioned R&R I’m feeling much better. And although I didn’t feel up to blogging, I did manage to turn these leftovers into a pretty damn good soup.
Spicy Asian Noodle Soup
1/2 cup cooked rice stick noodles, stir fried via this method
1-2 cups low sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
1 T Sriracha (or to taste)
1-2 T soy sauce (or to taste)
2 T chopped cilantro
1/2 t fish sauce
1/4 cup edamame
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pot and heat over medium heat until simmering, adjusted spices to taste.
A pretty simple soup, but the heat and the spice felt good on my scratchy throat and cleared my sinuses right up.
So much better than canned soup. And look, Ma! All better!
