Killer Soup
Originally uploaded by HMS Swiftsure.

Someone needs to invent "Smellervision" for computers and televisions. Ok, maybe that's not the best name but creativity is not my forte. I was feeling a bit blue today so I made me some soup. This always makes me feel better. I think it's all the garlic - there's about half a bulb of garlic in one pot. Mmmm. It might not look like the most appetizing thing you've ever seen but it's delicious, nutritious and makes my whole apartment smell fantastic. My neighbours always seem to have something to talk to me about on those rare days I make this... Too bad I can't share with you guys. I know how jealous you must be at the moment. Try not to drool on your keyboards - I wouldn't want you to get electrocuted.

UPDATED: I've had a couple of requests for the recipe so here you go:
- 2 cups chicken or veggie broth (Cambells makes a great broth with garlic and herbs)*
- 1 can pineapple tidbits including juice
- 1 diced pepper (any colour)
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped
- 2 diced chicken breasts
- 1 diced tomato
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- soy sauce and red chili pepper sauce to taste (in Canada you can get "A Taste of Thailand" chili sauce at Superstore...perfect!)
- handful of bean sprouts
- 5 or 6 cloves of garlic (more or less depending on desired taste)

Pour broth, soy sauce, chili pepper sauce, garlic and canned pineapple (including juice) into large pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Add all ingredients (except sprouts) and simmer for about an hour or until veggies are no longer crunchy (but not mushy) and the chicken is cooked all the way through. Right before serving, add bean sprouts. Get a big spoon and dig in. Very simple but very tasty. And I must thank my brother for the recipe. I'm tempted to throw in some bok choy next time I make it. Mmmm.

*If using condensed canned broth, use two 284ml cans and 2 cans of water.

Pineapple? Really?

I love soup - love making it, love eating it, love knowing that there is some in the freezer if I don't feel like cooking.
