August 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #172: Overdone it? Try a Healing Broth

Tip of the Week

This soup is warming when you're cold, calming when you're feeling stressed out and wonderfully frugal when you're trying to combat a period of excess. It's also very quick and easy to make:

You will need a large bunch of parsley, 1 tablespoon of olive or vegetable oil, 1 red or green chili, 1 piece of ginger (2.5 cm will do), 1 clove of finely chopped garlic, chicken or vegetable stock.

Warm the olive oil in a cooking pot and add the chopped garlic, finely chopped chili (take out the seeds if you don't like it too hot), finely sliced ginger and chopped parsley stalks. Turn over a low heat to soften, then add the stock and bring to the boil. When the fragrance of the soup fills your kitchen, take the pot off the stove and add the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

If you want something a little more substantial , add some Chinese noodles for the last few minutes of cooking. Add the parsley and serve when the noodles are done.
