disclaimer: i wasn’t quite sure how to punctuate this title….just know i am not telling Soup to feel better….nor am i suggesting with the quotations that this is a sarcastic title, and i’m somehow trying trick you into drinking this soup under the guise of ‘feeling better’………this is a soup, to help you feel better.
i have been making the soup weekly it seems. this hot and savory soup seriously helps kick start my wellness whenever i feel a cold or flu coming on. usually within a day or so of drinking it, i will notice a significant difference in my energy, a decrease in my body aches, and overall i will just feel better. of course it will depend on what you have and how severe your symptoms are, but this stuff really works for both paul and me whenever we have a cold or flu.
the garlic is incredibly antiviral and antibacterial , the ginger is an antiviral and antibacterial root, and can help to inhibit mucous production and clear up congestion. the green onions are a rich source of vitamin K, as well as support for the immune system. i drink this several times daily until i am feeling better. and then i mix noodles and veggies into any leftover broth and make an awesome veggie noodle soup! win. win.
the key is to drink it as hot as you can handle it. drinking it super hot will help you sweat out toxins, and get the healing process started.
here’s to health!
3 cups water
2 vegetarian bullion cubes
1/2 to 1 inch peeled ginger root, minced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 green onions, chopped
place all ingredients in a large pot over high heat. bring it to a boil for about 5 minutes. reduce heat to a simmer, and let the soup simmer for 5 more minutes.
again, drink this soup as hot as possible without burning yourself! drink this several times a day and feel better quick!
