Immune Boosting Chicken Soup Recipe
Garlic, turmeric and ginger are potent detoxifying and antiviral herbs to help the body get rid of toxins, stimulate circulation, reduce inflammation, aid digestion and boost your immune system. Coriander also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help fight disease. Adding a little protein such as chicken will supply your body with essential amino acids your body needs to heal and nourish. The perfect ingredients to help you get through the winter cold.
10 cloves garlic, smashed (approx 1 whole bulb)
2 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1 tablespoon fresh grated turmeric
1 litre chicken stock** (See note below)
1 litre water
500 g chicken
2 bunches coriander, chopped
¼ cup (60 ml / 2 oz) mirin or rice wine (optional but delicious)
3 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
Combine the garlic, turmeric, ginger, stock, water and chicken into a large pot.
Simmer for 5 – 10 minutes over low heat until chicken is cooked through and flavours have infused into the stock.
Add mirin, tamari and coriander just before serving.
Serve in large bowls and sip slowly. Enjoy!
**Note: if you have time, or are inclined to make your own chicken stock, simply buy a whole raw chicken and boil for a couple of hours then strain. Shred chicken off bones to use in soup. Place liquid in the fridge and skim hard fat off the top once set. Jelly (marrow) will liquefy once heated.
