So it’s going to be soup, not sure I will like it but I really don't have the strength.
Well that was the plan, that is until I actually arrive in the kitchen then it became a bit more. I mean come on people, anyone who knows me know that I don't just do simple.
And that my dear friends and followers is how I came up with the crazy ass soup.
50cl of water
1 tsp of nuoc mam
1 portion bacon bits ( Lardons )
1 egg poached
1/4 of a carrot
Some rockette leaves
How to make:
1- In a pot pour in the contents of the packet of the chicken noodle soup and add nuoc mam and water, bring to the boil.
2- While soup is boiling in a very hot pan through in your bacon bits, without any additional fat. You will want to get them brown and crispy, not burnt.
3- Poach your egg
Some advice for a poached egg. Make sure your water is boiling slowly; you do not want it boiling at high speed. Don’t forget to add a bit of salt to your water and a bit of vinegar, this helps the egg to coegulate.
Put your egg in only when the water is boiling and give it a little stir to make sure the white covers the yoke.
4 -julienne your carrots (julienne means cut into very thin strips)
5- Bring everything together:
Pour your chicken soup into a bowl, top with rockette salad and julienne carrot, put poached eggs on top and spread bacon bits above.
Now I don't know if it was because I was sick but I found this soup very good and it made me feel a little better. Why don't you guys give it a try.
Until next time I am nursing myself with a mixture of honey, rum and lime juice.
