The coughs and sneezes surrounding you are signaling the inevitable: Soon, either you, a roommate or a loved one will be sick. Cheer them (or yourself) up with one of these dishes from our archives. (Several freeze well, so it’s a good idea to make them soon to keep on hand!)
Halibut in Miso Broth. Like miso soup, but with a gentle boost of protein from fish fillets.
Golden Bone Broth. A great one to keep in the freezer: Use it as the base for a chicken soup (or any number of sauces), or sip it straight.
Clear-Steamed Chicken Soup With Ginger. Just six ingredients, with a helpful hit of ginger.
Better Than Instant Ramen. Uses a packet of instant noodles, but with added condiments, vegetables and an egg to keep it interesting. (You could use the bone broth above to make it that much better.)
Berry Cloud Chia Pudding. To satisfy that Jell-O craving you get when you’re sick. (You do get that, right? No? Just us?)
Cozy Cranberry Sipper. Full of vitamin C; serve it hot or cold.
The Green Machine Smoothie. The chill helps soothe a sore throat.
