Sick Again… Another Soup Night (10 minutes)

Ben and I have been taking turns being sick. So tonight is my turn. Being sick means a whole lot less patience in the kitchen. So here it is – 10 minute soup. No joke.

2 Servings:

– olive oil

– 3 cloves garlic

– 1 carrot

– 4 baby bok choy

– 1/2 chicken boillon cube

– approx 2 cups water 

– leftover meat, all seasonings included

I used 1/2 a chicken boillon cube to stay on the healthy side, but you can go all out if you are going full vegetarian. I added a couple pieces of chicken leftover from a previous meal that had been simply flavoured with tomato, tomato paste, olive oil, onions and garlic. See here –


This together with the chicken cube was enough for flavouring. I also used a generous amount of (approx. 1 tbsp) olive oil, which combined with frying the garlic first intensified the flavour quickly. 

Some of you may not like wilted greens, so throw this in last after adding water. I don’t mind greens in broth, having grown up with cooked greens. The key is not to overcook it. 

So ten minutes later, a welcome meal for a sick person:
