Restorative Soup

Serves 2
Meal type Beans, Chicken, Ginger, Tofu


  • Thumb sized piece of fresh ginger
  • 5 or 6 cloves of garlic

  • one or two shallot bulbs depending on the size

  • two or three hot peppers depending on the heat
(you may want to use Serrano habanero or jalapeno
to suit your own heat scale.)

  • 1 tsp of turmeric powder
  • chicken
  • tofu
  • mung beans
  • scallions
  • cilantro
  • lime


1 Chop these finely or use a food processor and add to boiling broth. If you are adding chicken I like to poach the breast in the broth remove and shred.
2 If you were adding tofu or shrimp I would do so at the last minute so as not to over cook. Add noodles and again depending on the noodle cook accordingly.
3 Mung bean threads are soaked in warm water and the added to the broth for about 5 minutes at the end.
4 Top the soup with chopped scallion, cilantro and a piece of lime. Inhale deeply and enjoy. Delicious.
