VEGAN CHICKEN SOUP: Relief in minutes
My husband just turned 67 yesterday. You’d never know it by his appearance. He has the face of a kid, well a fifty something kid. He is actually in school preparing for a new career. You may wonder why I am mentioning all of this. It sets the stage for this post, ‘vegan chicken soup’.
Well, my husband woke up sneezing and tired, after a full day of school yesterday. I had to do something to help him feel better. So I went to my mental medicine cabinet of folk remedies.
It is amazing how much money people spend in the drug store for all sorts of patent medicines when the traditional remedies cost pennies and work wonders. Hot water is the base of almost every remedy including the patent, over the counter cold cures.
I filled the tea kettle and let the water get good and hot while I grated some ginger and squeezed some lemon juice from organic lemons. I went to my medicine cabinet (the hand painted on that was my grandmother’s jelly cabinet) to get the echinacea/golden seal drops.
You pretty much have the process of the recipe from my description. Here is a list of the ingredients.
• At least two cups of hot water, good and hot, not necessarily boiling
• 1 inch of fresh (preferably organic) ginger, grated or cut into tiny pieces
• the juice of 1/2 lemon (preferably organic)
• a dropper full of echinacea/goldenseal liquid extract (drops) either with alcohol or alcohol free depending on your preference
By the time the water is good and hot, all the other ingredients are prepared. Drink at least two cups, rest (if possible) stay warm, eat alkaline foods and feel better soon.
