    ‘Get-Well-Soon’ Chicken Soup

    My husband’s mother kept telling us Silverbeet (Swiss Chard) would fix not only Cold but everything. Thus, Silverbeet is an essential ingredient for my ‘Get-Well-Soon’ Chicken Soup, but my family members prefer Spinach. Another essential ingredient is fresh Ginger.

    Today I wanted to cook Asian flavoured Roasted Carrots. I was going to use my ‘Char Siu’ sauce, but the sauce is very sweet and I was afraid it would be too sweet for Carrots. Then I decided to use Gochujang Sauce that I often use for Chicken and Tofu dishes, e.g. ‘Gochujang Tofu Rice …
