Tis the season… for THE COMMON COLD!

Feeling under the weather? I have been lucky and haven’t caught any bugs yet, but last week my husband felt under the weather. To knock this cold out of his system I thought I would make him some super spicy soup to clear out his sinuses and to help his sore throat. So I made him some Spicy Veggie Soup with Egg Noodles. (I was eating it too so I made it vegetarian.) Honestly he loved it and let me tell you it was SPICY!! Wanna make it? This is what you’ll need:

  • 3 boxes of vegetable broth (I can’t remember the oz) (it’s not the cans it’s those tall rectangular boxes)
  • 1 bag egg noodles
  • cayenne pepper
  • Garlic (1 clove)
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Italian seasoning
  • basil and oregano (dried) (not much just a pinch)
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 box of mushrooms
  • 1 1/4 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 big broccoli crown
  • 3/4 red onion
  • 5 -7 small red potatoes

Alright ready for the easiest recipe ever?? Dice the potatoes and add it in the vegetable broth, also add the jalapeno (cut in big chunks) and let sit on medium low for about 2 hours. Add the seasoning too so it simmers with the broth, depending on how spicy you want the soup adjust the cayenne pepper to taste. I added a lot because we like spicy, however I thought it was a too spicy for me. After the potatoes are soft, then add all the other veggies and let it sit for another 30 minutes or so. Before you want to eat I would make the noodles, Depending if you want the soup brothy or chunky make as many noodles as you want. ( I am a pasta person so I made my bowl a little, ok a lot, chunky. )img_7500img_7503img_7511img_7506A side note too, I would add the noodles to each individual bowl so they don’t get soggy if you end up having leftovers (which you should, I made this for just my husband and I, and we had enough to feed 5 or 6 people)

Now you are ready for the cold season! I hope you don’t catch any bugs but in case you do, you’ll be ready to fight back!

Peace out Girl Scouts.
