Sick Mans Soup 🍜
We have a sicky in the house so I decided to make what I’ve coined as “sick mans soup” with all of the ingredients that my grandma told me would make you better; garlic, ginger, turmeric and spice! 👵🏽.
▪️6-8 garlic cloves, crushed and sliced
▪️Fresh ginger, size of your thumb, chopped
▪️Fresh turmeric root, the size of you pinky, sliced
▪️2 fresh lemongrass stalks
▪️2 kaffir lime leaves
▪️1 hot chili of your choosing, chopped with seeds ▪️2 Tbsp fish sauce
▪️1 tsp rice vinegar
▪️1 Tbsp soy sauce
▪️1 tsp cumin
▪️1 tsp coriander
▪️1 box chicken stock
▪️1 can of coconut milk
▪️Whatever vegetables you have in your fridge! I used mushrooms, red cabbage, onion, celery, and shrimp
▪️Add a little bit of oil, garlic, ginger, turmeric root, and chili into a deep pan (that can hold 4-6 cups of soup).
▪️Add hardy vegetables first - like celery, cabbage, onions, carrots etc. cook on high for 5 minutes
▪️Add softer vegetables like mushrooms next
▪️Add cumin and coriander
▪️Pour in chicken stock, coconut milk, fish sauce, rice vinegar, and soy sauce.
▪️Add lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, then add shrimp and bring to boil
▪️Once at a boil, simmer.
