Cold Cure Soup Recipe

There are so many people getting colds right now, I thought I better post this Cold Cure Soup Recipe.

Sorry I didn't get a picture of this soup, I will try to remember the next time I make it.

Cold Cure Soup
1 Tablespoon  canola oil
1 onion chopped into chunks
1 head of garlic (break this into toes and chop)
 pinch of sea salt
4 cups vegetable broth ( you can use 4 cups water and 1 cube vegetable boullion)
1 teaspoon turmeric
pinch of coriander powder (optional)

Heat canola oil over medium flame until it starts to ripple.

 Add onions and salt. Stir to induce sweating. If onions look at all like they might burn or brown, turn the heat down to medium low.

After the onions sweat for 5 minutes, add  chopped garlic cloves. Sweat together for about 15 minutes.

When completely translucent and soft, add water/broth/bouillon and turmeric and coriander (optional)

 Cover and turn  heat to medium high and bring to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer for 10 to 20 minutes.  The longer you boil the better it is

Remove from heat and  cool.

Blend the soup to make it smooth

This recipe was found at The Modern Southern Kitchen.  Go on over and check out her blog.  She has a lot of great recipes!!

  5. I do not use canola oil, very bad, but could use coconut oil and add even more wonderful nutrients to this soup. Thanks for sharing.

  6. That sounds like a great soup to help when you have a cold--I would probably throw in some chicken to give it a little something extra (already cooked chicken).

  7. Whenever I get a cold, it always turns into a sinus and ear infection. For some reason, my sinuses just plug up and I can never get them to open up no matter what I try. Next time I get sick, I want to try this because I bet the onion & garlic will help clear them out!!

  8. I adore garlic, and with a whole head of garlic in the ingredients list, this soup sounds amazingly delicious! We all have a sniffle at the moment, but colds can strike at any time - eek!

  9. I have never heard of this "Cold Soup Recipe". I do eat a strict vegetarian diet and love making soup. I think I will try adding herbs I know to be healthy like turmeric but don't usually eat in soups. Great post.

  10. My throat has been killing me this week, and no amount of orange juice, hot tea, or cough drops seems to be able to qualm the discomfort. I'm pretty sure it's just because the seasons are changing and it's just taken a cold turn here where I live. As a vegetarian, this recipe would work really well for me, so thank you for sharing it! I plan on trying it out this weekend if I get some time. :)

  14. I have been stuck with a cold that won't seem to go away and haven't had the time or energy to make my homemade chicken soup, but this cold cure is SO much easier to whip up than having to worry about boiling chicken, making brother, cutting veggies... and so on :P . Now I can enlist my family members to help and that way we can can it and stock up for the season. Thanks for sharing the recipe!! -Rosey
