It seems we are mid-fever into this flu season…and wowsers it’s been a doosey. Here are some ‘healing’ soups that I’ve found to help you wade through the muck of illness:
A gal at my church had this recipe to share:
Ingredients2-3 cloves of Garlic 1 large Onion 1-2 Tbs. fresh grated Ginger 2 Tbs. fresh Cilantro 3 Tbs. yeast-free instant Vegetable Broth 2=3 Quarts of Water 1 Cucumber (optional: Carrots, Cabbage, Celery) “Real Salts” to taste
Chop and crush garlic cloves into small diced pieces and lightly steam-fry. Set aside. Put whole onion in water in a deep pan, simmer until onion is transparent (approx. 1 hour). Add garlic and vegetable broth. Slice cucumber (and optional veggies) and add to soup. Simmer 10-15 minutes. Add fresh ginger and cilantro and Real salt to taste. This soup is especially soothing when tired, stressed, or sick with cold or flu, and is very anti-fungal.
