A great quick and easy recipe to help you get through the cold season.
If you want a vegetarian option, just use the vegetable stock and omit the chicken.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 10 cloves garlic, smashed 

  • 2 tablespoons finely grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated turmeric
  • 1 litre chicken or vegetable stock (chicken is best)
  • 1 litre water
  • 500g chicken breast (organic is best)
  • 1 bunch parsley or corriander (depending on what you like the flavour of)
  • 1/4 cup Miren
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Combine the garlic, turmeric, ginger, stock, water and chicken into a large pot.
  2. Simmer for 5 – 10 minutes over a low heat until chicken is cooked through and flavours have infused into the stock.
  3. Add mirin, soy sauce, beaten egg and coriander or parsley just before serving.


We always make a big pot of this up when anyone in the house gets a cold.
