2 cups of water
1 head of garlic, cloves sliced into this rounds
Chunk of vegetable bouillon the size of a pea
1 Tbs nutritional yeast
Generous pinch of sea salt
1 tsp - 1 Tbs red pepper flakes (optional but great)
1 scallion, chopped (optional but also nice)
Noodles from one packet of Ramen (optional but if you're squeamish about the garlic or want more of a meal soup rather than a broth these are nice. Discard the flavor packet. Or use a different kind of noodle.)
1 Tbs miso (any kind)
Boil everything but the noodles and miso until the garlic is tender. Add more water if you need to. Add noodles and cook until done. Remove from heat and add miso. Ta-da! Run, run, little cold germs. The garlic is coming to get you. Bwahaha . . .
In other news I'm struggling to get my life back under control after turning in the book the day before the deadline (yay!). There should soon be news of animals and new projects and Etsy listings (yay!). But please bear with me; I've been letting everything not essential slide while I worked on the book and it's going to take me awhile to whip it back into shape. An important event is happening in 12 days though . . . do you remember what? Am crossing my fingers for a sale or giveaway or some such to celebrate.
