In my last post, I featured all sweet things. In this one, I want to share with you two fast, savory, yummy meals that we’ve been eating lately.
The first is this soup, which I posted about a few years ago, had in pretty serious rotation and then… forgot. I am so glad I remembered it because it is so good. Slightly spicy, warm, full of healthy vegetables and soothing noodles. This time around, I used onion, garlic, ginger, mushrooms, baby bok choy and carrots. I think I added chicken that I had previously baked as well. Soy sauce, sriracha and a dash of fish sauce rounded out the broth.
I’m not kidding when I tell you that this soup was gone in two days. Twenty minutes to make. Amazing flavor. No regrets.
When I was traveling, I had the chance to read for fun (imagine that!) and i ended up reading Ruth Reichl’s Garlic And Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise. It’s a delightful read and she sprinkles in recipes here and there. I was intrigued by her Spaghetti Carbonara recipe which she says is “the perfect last minute dinner, and I’ve yet to meet a child who doesn’t like it.”
While it was in fact, easy and good for a last minute dinner, of course MY children didn’t like it. Which is fine, really. More for me!
