Penicillin Soup: The Ultimate Comfort Food for Sick Days

When the Sniffles Hit Every Corner of Your Home...

Hello, dear readers! We've all been there – the entire household comes down with a cold, and suddenly, you're in dire need of a remedy that comforts and nourishes everyone. That's where our special recipe, fondly named 'Penicillin Soup,' comes into play! 🥣💚

Why 'Penicillin Soup'?

No, it doesn't actually contain penicillin, but this soup is packed with ingredients known for their healing properties. From the immune-boosting power of garlic to the anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric, this soup is a warm hug in a bowl.

The Healing Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 boxes (32 oz each) of chicken broth
  • 2 to 4 cups of water
  • 2 bunches of celery, chopped
  • 6 whole carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 12 cloves of garlic
  • 2 whole onions
  • A bundle of thyme
  • Ginger paste
  • Turmeric (about 2 tbsp, but who's measuring?)
  • 4 tbsp roasted chicken 'Better Than Bouillon'
  • Juice of 2-3 lemons
  • Acini di pepe pasta
  • Parmesan/Romano cheese for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Veggie Prep: In an Instant Pot, combine the celery, carrots, garlic, onions, and thyme. Cover with chicken broth and set to high pressure for 30 minutes. For a more traditional approach, you can simmer these on the stove until soft.
  2. Blend for Smoothness: Once the veggies are cooked, blend them with some broth until smooth.
  3. Combine All: In a large pot, mix the blended veggies with the remaining broth and water. Add ginger paste, turmeric, and Better Than Bouillon.
  4. Lemon Zest: Squeeze in the lemons for that extra zing.
  5. Simmer: Bring the soup back to a simmer.

Serving Suggestion:

Serve this healing broth over cooked acini di pepe pasta. If you like, sprinkle some Parmesan or Romano cheese on top for added flavor. A pro tip: keep the broth and pasta separate until serving to prevent the pasta from soaking up all the broth.

Why This Soup Works

Garlic & Onions:

These are natural immunity boosters, perfect for fighting off colds.

Turmeric & Ginger:

Both are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Chicken Broth:

It's not just comforting; it's also great for hydration and nourishment.

Lemon:

A dash of vitamin C to help boost your immune system.

Conclusion

This 'Penicillin Soup' is more than just a meal; it's a remedy passed down through generations, a staple for those sick days when you need an extra boost of comfort and healing. It's a testament to the power of nourishing ingredients and the love that goes into preparing a meal for your family. So, next time the cold bug hits your home, you know what to whip up!

Stay warm and healthy, everyone! 🍲❤️
