Sore Stomach Soup

I engineered this one specifically to be easy on an upset stomach. It works wonders. On another note, if you aren’t feeling under the weather and want to add some real flavour, adding half a spoonful of chili-garlic sauce does the trick.


2 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces.

2 leeks, sliced.

1 carrot, cut into small pieces

Salt and Pepper

1 small tsp of red pepper flakes

4 cups of chicken broth

200 g of vermicelli rice noodles

1 cup of shredded romaine lettuce



Cook rice noodles according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, cook the chicken pieces until browned all the way through in a frying pan or wok. Season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Add carrot and leeks, stir fry. 

Once veggies have softened, add the whole mixture to the cooked rice noodles and add the chicken broth. Serve into bowls and top with shredded lettuce.


Vegetarian Tortellini Soup

This recipe is based off of one I found in Williams-Sonoma’s Foodmadefast One pot cookbook, but altered to be simpler and purely vegetarian.




500 g of cheese tortellini

2 zucchinis

1 carrot

3 vegetable broth cubes, or 6 cups of veggie broth

Salt and pepper

Parmesan cheese




Chop the zucchini and the carrots into small pieces. Stir fry in a medium sized pot, seasoning with salt and pepper. Once soft, add the vegetable broth and bring to boil.

Add the tortellini and cook according to package directions. Add more pepper, and serve into bowls. Top with a drizzling of olive oil and some parmesan cheese.
