I have been so damn busy lately, I’ve hardly had time to cook.

I recognize that as a full-time food writer, I make my living by cooking and should not be able to say that I have no time to cook. But, there it is.

Other than the recipes I create specifically for the blog, I don’t really pull out all the stops and cook up fabulous meals very often. Likely because I’m cooking for one, and I also don’t really like to eat leftovers.

On those days when I *literally can’t even*, this is the soup that gets made.

It’s still cold outside, so I refuse to make myself a salad or cold sandwich for dinner. Soup is WHERE IT’S AT.

As you all know, it’s nearly impossible for me to make anything without turning it into a Thai-style dish. Sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, sriracha, and fish sauce transform this humble soup into a lip-smacking meal worthy of *actually* putting it on the meal plan.

I almost didn’t share this recipe because the pictures are a little…meh. In my defense, I was really freaking hungry and just wanted to eat the soup. We’re all allowed to have a bad day at work, right!?

Of course, a bad day at my job usually isn’t *that* bad because I get to eat stuff. And as we all know, eating stuff is what life is all about.

Here’s the Recipe!
