Weekend Cooking

Being my birthday weekend, I haven’t done any cooking.  I’ve let others cook for me, specifically the local Chinese buffet and Papa Johns!  So, I don’t have any new cooking to share this weekend, but being winter, cold as all heck and perfect soup weather, I am going to share one of my favorite soup recipes.  It’s so yummy and comforting and perfect if you have a cold.  Plus, it freezes really well!

A warning here however, the ginger can be very strong in this soup, so don’t go overboard like I did the first time I made this soup. I LOVE ginger and added way more than the recipe calls for.  It was a little spicy!

Warming Ginger Soup

Here is the original recipe.  I modified mine to feed fewer people.

1 cloves garlic, minced
1.5 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
4 cups good vegetable stock
1/2 c rice wine vinegar
1/4 c soy sauce (or tamari)
1/4 tbsp freshly cracked black pepper
A few ounces of your favorite noodles
A few mushrooms

In sauce pan, add garlic and 1/2 cup of the vegetable stock. Simmer for 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, and simmer for a minute or two. Add noodles, vegetables, or tofu as desired.

I think this would be really good with some chicken in it.  And maybe some baby Bok Choy!.

  1. I love, love, love ginger, so I'm so I'm really glad you warned me about adding too much (I'm inclined to increase the ginger when I can!). This looks simple and comforting. Plus, I almost always have the ingredients in the house. Oh, I know what I'm having for lunch. (A few soba noodles would be Game On, wouldn't they?)

  2. Mmm…sounds good, but my husband and one of my sons HATE ginger, so I guess this one's out for me.

    Cooking Light is my favorite source for recipes – we had two good ones this weekend. One of our all-time favorites is Chipotle Tamale Pie:

    And tonight we had Pork Ragout for the first time – my family liked it but said I should cut back on the rosemary next time:
