Boost Your Health with Garlic Soup!

We all know what time of year it is! Sniffling, sneezing, coughing, complaining and the general need to hibernate. Boost your immunity and kick your cold or flu to the curb! Have you ever tried Garlic Soup? Here is a great Garlic Soup recipe recommended by Dr. Chris Bjorndal from Natural Terrain Naturopathic Clinic Edmonton.

Garlic Soup Recipe 

Serves 4

  • 26 garlic cloves (unpeeled)
  • 
2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) organic butter (grass fed)
  • 
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 
1/2 cup fresh ginger
  • 2 1/4 cups sliced onions
  • 
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 26 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 
1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 1/2 cups organic vegetable broth
  • 
4 lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 350F. Place 26 garlic cloves in small glass baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and toss to coat. Cover baking dish tightly with foil and bake until garlic is golden brown and tender, about 45 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic between fingertips to release cloves. Transfer cloves to small bowl.

Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, thyme, ginger and cayenne powder and cook until onions are translucent, about 6 minutes. Then, roasted garlic and 26 raw garlic cloves and cook 3 minutes. Add vegetable broth; cover and simmer until garlic is very tender, about 20 minutes. Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth. Return soup to saucepan; add coconut milk and bring to simmer. Season with sea salt and pepper for flavour.

Squeeze juice of 1 lemon wedge into each bowl and serve.

Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
