Soup for the Sick

What do you do when you’re ill and vegan? Make this delicious, sinus clearing, healthy soup (and read a good book when taking a break from video games). Inspired by . Thank you for this recipe!


Rice noodles

Handful of spinach

900 ml vegetable broth

2 carrots (slices into small circles)

1 parsnip (sliced into bite sized pieces)

2 cups chestnut mushrooms

2 stalks of celery

1 onion

1 inch piece of fresh ginger, ground or minced

5 cloves of garlic (less if you don’t like garlic)

2 green tea bags

1 1/2 tsp tumeric 

1 tsp dried basil

2 tsp ground peppercorn

Salt and pepper to taste


Heat up your broth and add your tumeric, basil, ginger, and peppercorn in a large pot. Add the tea bags for about 2 minutes.

Chop up your celery, onion, carrots, and parsnip into pieces of whichever size you like. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook in a pan with water, and covered with a lid. 

Chop uo your mushrooms and add them to the veggie pan and let them cook/steam until they are soft.

Add your rice noodles to the vegetable broth (ensure the tea bags are out of the broth by now). Once the noodles are almost cooked through, add the veggies to the broth. Add your handful of spinach on top and let it cook until the spinach has wilted.

Enjoy your soup (and cleared sinuses) and I hope you feel better!
