suffering from a head cold is no fun. especially when you can’t taste anything because of it. the solution i figured was flavors that were powerful enough to taste but with that comforting soup sort of feel. the solution some fancy ramen. ramen can be a wonderful basis for a quick easy asian dish. while the noodles cooked. i stir-fried onions, sun-dried tomatoes and peppers in a thai pepper paste. paired with a couple of crab rangoon, this meal was just what i needed, good to the last chopstick full.
