Hot Ginger Broth with Tomato

You won’t believe how easy this is to make and how good it tastes. It’s the perfect thing for a cold night when you don’t feel like cooking after work. You can make it with bouillon cubes, but it’s even better if you can use real vegetable stock.

Serves 2 (or 1 hungry person!)

2 vegetable bouillon cubes
1 knob of fresh ginger, peeled and grated (to make about 2 tsp.)
1 tomato, seeded and diced
3 drops of Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce
Half a green onion (scallion), chopped
Fresh ground pepper

Put 3 cups of water in a pot with all of the other ingredients but the ground pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. Just before serving, grind the pepper on top.

I like the recipe as is, but you can play around with it and add other ingredients to suit your taste.
