Every month nowadays I seem to be getting a cold. They never last long, but it is extremely tiresome, those stuffy nights I have to deal with during the ordeal. Nevertheless, I like to use good old traditional methods to make myself feel better. So I wanted to share with you a recipe for a spicy chicken noodle soup packed with loads of nutrients that works wonders. Find out how to make it below.
- 1 cup of kale (or kimchi – I used both)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp chopped garlic
- 1 tsp chopped ginger
- 1⁄2 onion chopped
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 2 eggs, hard boiled
- 8 ounces of udon noodles (or courgette noodles)
- 6 ounces meat (chicken in this case)
- Salt + pepper to taste
- Begin by boiling the noodles.
- Saute the kale with soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and onions, until wilted.
- Add the chicken stock and bring to boil.
- Place two eggs in a saucepan and bring to boil. (6 mins for runny – 10 mins for hard boiled).
- Reduce heat and add the pepper and salt.
- Add in the chicken (I had pre-cooked the chicken).
- Bring back to a simmer and let the soup cook for about 20 minutes.
- Once the eggs are cooked, run under cold water and peel.
- Cut the eggs in half and place into the soup along with the noodles.
