Chicken Soup goes tropic..

The Boy woke up couching something fierce yesterday and sounded like he was going to get a cold.
Interesting enough, I woke up with a runny nose and a cough so the crock-pot is out of the cabinet and I’m making Indonesian chicken soup aka Soto.

4 cups chicken bouillon
2 cloves garlic
1-2 table spoons fresh ginger, minced
1 stick sereh (lemon grass), minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tsp turmeric
2 chicken filets, cut in small strips
4 ounces cut up mushrooms, we use shitake
6 ounces bean sprouts
2-4 ounces rice noodles.

Heat bouillon in pan with garlic,ginger sereh,red pepper.
Allow to simmer for 10 minutes on low.
Add chicken and mushrooms to broth.
In a separate pot cook rice noodles.
Put bean sprouts in a seperate bowl and serve with soup and noodles.
