Vegan Get Well Soup…


So, I spent the past couple days fighting a cold and catching up on Gossip Girl (don’t judge!). Today most my energy came back so I made a soup that I came up with last year, as a vegetarian’s answer to chicken noodle soup. Now I should remind you, I’m not a chef and all of this is highly modifiable!

If you aren’t a fan of ginger or garlic you can leave these out but they are both so good for fighting colds!

I like to use Rapunzel vegetable broth cubes that you can find at a natural foods grocery store. It’s easier to keep these on hand than a liquid broth, plus they pack more flavor and are cheaper!

Alright… let’s make soup! In a big pot, add a tablespoon of olive oil and the ginger and garlic. Saute briefly, just to release a little of the flavor. Add the water, broth, carrots, celery, and rice, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered until the carrots are soft and the rice is cooked, about 20 minutes. Add the chopped cabbage and let it wilt, about 5 more minutes.

The rice in this soup tends to absorb the broth so if you have leftovers you can add a little more water when re-heating. The broth is really flavorful and comforting, and the veggies make you feel like you are instantly getting better.

Isn’t it so lame how cold and flu season totally try to ruin the holidays? Total jerks! It can be hard to avoid, especially when you work around a bunch of people, since it seems like everyone is coming down with something. Here’s a few tips I’ve learned from my naturopath about preventing (or quickly recovering from) sickness:

I should also probably tell you I’m not a doctor, in case you were wondering :) That means if any of these tips don’t sound right for you, don’t do them! Mmmmmkay?
