Yesterday was the most odd day. I woke up at 7:30am when Lu did and I could barely lift my head off the pillow. Usually, I get ready with Lu when he wakes up for work, but I just couldn’t pull myself out of bed.
So, I grabbed my laptop and laid in bed and posted yesterday’s recipe, and fell back asleep until about 12:30/1pm. I had no appetite, but I knew that a solid meal would help energize me, because I had a lot to accomplish.
I made a bowl of zucchini noodles with a miso broth, salmon seared with ginger and a jalapeno-scallion relish. Very random, but I wanted the health benefits of ginger, salmon and vegetables. Plus, if anything, when I’m sick, I want soup.
I wasn’t going to post this recipe, actually, because it was pretty simple. But delicious, of course.
But then, I saw all of your Instagram comments come in, asking me if I was going to post the recipe and tagging your friends. Obviously, I had to share the recipe!
The warmth and savoriness of the miso broth infuse the zucchini noodles as they boil together. This soup alone (just noodles and broth) is a delicious base for any type of noodle soup.
The salmon I seared in ginger for extra nutrients and help with my tummy ache (man, did it do the trick!) and the jalapeno-scallion relish adds a tangy, earthy taste, completing the dish.
Eating well is the magical remedy for any sickness, and while I’m bummed that I’ve been feeling under the weather, I’m happy it inspired today’s recipe.
What’s your favorite meal for those times when you’re feeling sick?
