Simple Ginger Soup

Who would have thought I'd see 60 degrees in August? Wowee. With all this cool, delightful rain (and my stubbornly remaining sore throat issue), today is a perfect day for a nice, light soup. This is similar to those soups you get in the Japanese steak houses, where they cook the meal at the dining table. 
Simple Ginger Soup

Difficulty: Easy Peasy

Prep Time: 30 seconds

Cook Time: 5-10 minutes


3 cups H20
1 tbsp chicken bouillon
1 capful soy sauce, approximately
1 mushroom (just the regular button kind)
1 small handful of french fried onions
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger, approximately.
1 twist of black pepper

In a small pot, combine the H20, bouillon and soy sauce. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; at same time, thinly slice the mushroom. Once boiling, add in remaining ingredients. Stir and boil maybe 30 seconds; you don't want the mushrooms and onions to become mushy. Serve immediately.

TCE stories should be up later today/wee hours of the night (depending).


  1. Hey , this sounds ... er ... *searching for suitable word* interesting ...? to be quite honest , I prefer my ginger in tea , as in honey/ginger tea . The soup would probably sooth that sore throat ...hope you recover from it !

  2. It's good, I promise. *laugh*

    I admit that I probably love ginger a lot more than the average person, but the flavors in this are really well balanced; it's such a simple soup that you only get a little kick of each flavor. It does feel good on the throat, too.
