Although homemade soup is considered as a cure for decades, many people will rather reach for a medicine prescribed by a doctor than for a remedy our grandmothers used to give us when we were children. It is time to try out some other solutions when we get colds or the flu.
There are a lot of vegetables that have natural properties that fight infections. One of them is garlic for example.
This was proven by researchers from the University of Washington in a survey that they conducted not long ago.
The soup that we are going to talk about is very healthy because it consists of thyme, red onion and garlic. All of them have a lot of health benefits.
- 50 garlic cloves, cleaned and peeled
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 large onions, minced
- 1 cup fatty sour cream
- 3 cups stale bread, diced
- 1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
- 6 glasses (250 ml each) clear chicken soup (as a base)
- 1 bunch of fresh herbs – parsley, thyme, bay leaves (you can use dried spices)
- 2 tsp of olive oil
How to prepare the natural antibiotic:
Peel the garlic and put it in a kitchen foil with some added oil. Preheat the oven on 180 degrees and roast the garlic for 90 minutes. When it is done, leave it to cool down.
Next, take a pan and melt the butter. Add the olive oil in it. Stew the minced onion and then add the roasted garlic.
Before you add the garlic don’t forget to drain the excess oil from the pan. Stir well and add the previously prepared chicken soup thyme and herbs. Reduce the temperature to low and add the bread croutons.
To finish the soup, remove the herbs and blend everything together.
Add the sour cream to get a creamy texture. This soup is natural antibiotic, incredibly tasty and healthy.
