No soup for you.

Faced with the challenge of needing to devour any medicinal ingredient I could get my hands on, garlic, ginger, onions, chili, but it not being soup, I had to come up with a plan B.
Instantly rich curries and tagines come to mind, but lets not forget the man flu, it had to be ready in about 15mins and with a little effort as possible. So close to death you don't want to risk a delicious slow cook if there is a chance you won't live long enough to taste it.
The answer???

Man Flu Fried Rice
  • Olive oil.
  • 2 onions chopped (any colour)
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped (or as much as you or your beloved can stand)
  • 4 cm ginger finely chopped
  • 2 red chili sliced (seeds in or out it's up to you)
  • 2 carrots grated
  • 3 stalk celery sliced
  • Garden fresh broccoli or any other vegetable you can get your hands on.
  • 3 spring onions chopped
  • 3 cups of cooked rice
  • Salt and pepper
  • Kecap Manis, as much as you like.

  • Saute onions, garlic ginger and chili with a good splash of olive oil in a fry pan.
  • When the onions start to soften, add the carrot and celery and other vegetables and saute for about 5 mins, you can add a little bit of water or stock if it is too dry.
  • Add the spring onions and rice.
  • Add Kecap Manis, salt and pepper to taste.
  • This version was meatless but you can add any meat of your choice...if you have the strength to go to the shops.
  • grab a box of tissues, a blanket, pillow, boxed set of your favourite DVD and pray you have enough strength to eat.
