Sick Day Soup
1 Knorr veggie bouillon cube
2 cups water
2 big green onions (w/ white parts too) chopped
7 large cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons veggie butter
3/4 cup rice
small pieces of dried hot red pepper
black pepper, paprika
Melt the butter. Halve the pieces of garlic and put them in butter on low setting, covered, for about 5 minutes. They will get soft and start to turn gold.
Chop carrots into small pieces, add to the pot and cover again for 5 minutes. Add onions and hot pepper. When the green onion has started to wilt, add water and bullion cube. Bring to a boil and add rice, cover for 10 minutes.
This is also really good with a large piece of ginger boiled with the rice and then removed before serving.
