Rice Soup

This is what I eat every time "I feel under the weather". I call it "feel better soup". I boil 1/4 cup of rice with a lot of water. Then I add julienne cut ginger, chop garlic (garlic is really good for you when you are sick) and chop onions. Add salt to taste. You can also add chicken broth after the rice is cooked, to have more broth. I added hard boiled eggs slices for protein. The more ginger you add the better. I like the taste of ginger when I am sick. If you can find an oriental noodle soup the hot one, that is really good too. Eating something hot (spice) when getting sick makes you sweat it out and clears your nose and throat at the same time. Try it out when you are feeling ill sometimes.

To my fellow Tagalog speaking pinay, ano bang tawag dito; arroz caldo or goto? Hindi ko na matandaan kaya tinawag ko na lang "rice soup". Let me know, ok?
