The numerous healing properties of this remarkable soup can help you with colds, ear infections, flu and other health conditions. The three main ingredients for its preparation are: red onion, garlic and thyme.
The latest study from the University of Washington has found garlic to be 100 times more powerful than the most commonly prescribed conventional antibiotics.
Moreover, all three ingredients have powerful antibacterial properties which can protect from viruses, colds, flu and other illnesses which weaken your immune system.
- 2 large, minced onions
- 50 cloves of garlic, cleaned and peeled (5 garlic bulbs)
- 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme
- 1 cup of fatty sour cream
- 1 bunch fresh herbs – parsley, thyme, bay leaves (you can use dried spices)
- 2 teaspoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 6 cups (250 ml each) of clear chicken soup (as a base)
- 3 cups old bread, cut into cubes
At first, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cut off the tops (1/3) heads of the garlic and wrap the garlic together with olive oil in aluminum foil, and bake it for 90 minutes. Then, allow it to cool off.
In a pot over medium heat, add two tablespoons of olive oil and butter. Stew the onions for 10 minutes.
Then, add the already baked garlic to the stewed onions. Stir, add the chicken soup, the chopped thyme and add fresh or dried herbs.
Now lower the heat, add the snippets from bread and allow it to stew for five minutes until the bread becomes soft.
Take out the herbs and stir the soup in a blender or a hand mixer until you obtain creamy and homogenous mixture. In order to enrich the flavor, you can add sour cream and salt.
Enjoy in both- this delicious soup and your health!
