Yesterday I woke up and my eyeballs hurt. I was also walking around like a zombie. Despite having a good night’s sleep, I just couldn’t seem to wake up, so doing things like talking to clients and working on design mock-ups took incredible amounts of effort.
I’m fighting a cold bug and I don’t want it to win, so for lunch I whipped up this vegetable and whole grains soup. Loaded with dark leafy greens (kale to the rescue?), garlic and anything else I could find from the crisper and pantry, it was the perfect meal. And today I feel better. I don’t know if it was the soup, or the copious amounts of water I drank, or even the vitamins that I popped, but for the sake of a happy ending, let’s say it was the soup!
As today is Wednesday, you can find this cold-busting soup recipe over at Poppytalk. And if you have any leftovers, you can always eat this as soup. Or you could do what I did this past summer and turned soup leftovers into veggie burgers. Your call.
Oh my, if only I'd have seen this soup a couple weeks ago, when I was battling – and losing sorely to – a long, lingering cold. Mmmmmm.
I bet it was the soup for sure 🙂 soup cures all!
Brilliant, and perfect timing. I've had a package of those Trader Joe's grains that I haven't known what t do with, and there's a big bunch of kale in my fridge. This is dinner tonight! 🙂
Ow! Could you maybe talk to Poppytalk about changing the font? Or maybe it's just my eyes it hurts.
Amanda, I'm still fighting! I think I'll be cooking lots of soup in the near future.
Heather, glad to inspire!
I agree, Stephchows!
Hmmm, really? I guess the font isn't the easiest read, Jessica. I'll pass it along.
A great way to use up all kinds of refrigerator bits and bobs! Love the little "eyeball" pasta you used! Hope you are feeling better 🙂
Bijoux, it's actually israeli couscous, though i do love the term eyeball pasta!
This soup looks like exactly what I need today! Your photos are lovely, simple and so appealing. I'm really enjoying your blog!
Thanks so much, Nervous Cook!
