chicken soup

ok i am going to whine a little bit, i have been feeling a bit tired the last week. And woke up on Sunday morning with the most awful cold. So i have spent the last 2 days watching far to much of How I Met Your Mother and trying to get better. I have only just managed to leave the house once today to pick up some groceries, even tough the grocery store is downstairs. Well yesterday I didn't really feel like eating at all anyways. So this is a recipe for a very simple chicken soup it takes about five minutes to prepare and can be easily prepared when feeling awful.

1 litre chicken stock (preservative free & colour free)
2 cups of water
2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
1 dried birds eye chilli
1 carrot, chopped into rounds
8 shiitake mushrooms (sliced)
6 baby bok choy
1 handful rice stick vermicelli

1. Pour chicken stock and water in large pot add garlic, chilli and carrot rounds.  Bring to boil.
2. Lower heat to a simmer add sliced shiitake mushrooms, baby bok choy and rice stick vermicelli and simmer until vermicelli is cooked approximately 3-5 minutes.
3. Serve and get better.
