The only thing I could face eating for lunch on the day after my marathon was a hearty, salty soup. I didn’t want bread, peanut butter, salad, pasta…I looked through the cupboards and found some noodles, and suddenly I just had to have this wonderful bowl of rescue remedy!

Rescue Recovery Noodle Soup
Serves 1

1 bunch of noodles (I love egg noodles)
2 cups vegetable stock
1/2 can chickpeas
1 cup of mixed frozen veggies: I use sweetcorn, green beans, peas and broad beans
1 tsp miso paste*
1 tbsp soy sauce
Handful of cashew nuts

1. Bring the stock to the boil and add the noodles, chick peas and frozen veg.

2. Meanwhile, heat a dry pan and roast the cashew nuts – keep an eye on them as they burn very quickly!

3. After about 5 minutes, stir in the miso paste.

4. Pour into a bowl and stir in the soy sauce and cashew nuts.

Quick, easy and delicious! Though this is pretty high in salt so watch the soy sauce if you’re not in desperate need of anything salty!

*I found this in my local health food grotto. If you can’t find it, you could use a miso soup sachet, or just your own preferred mixture of soy sauce and spices.
