    I just came across this recipe for a healing soup. I haven't tried it yet, but I do believe that it will nock out what ails you. I can't speak to the taste or the smell though...

    It looks great for things like a cold, flu. pneumonia, bronchitis, congestion, etc.

    You want to use fresh ingredients for the best results.

    I add grated fresh ginger, turmeric, and parsley or cilantro to my similar soup.

    They would be a great addition--especially the turmeric and ginger.

    In general I LOVE soups.
    I feel they are a very nutritious and offer a solid hydrating meal with minimal resources.

    You lost me at onion, however, that can be easily omitted. Will give this one a whirl sometime.

    I put a splash of that into a lot of stuff. Not sure if it does any good, but it doesn't seem to hurt.

    Some of you who are enjoying Vikings, might find the following historical factoid interesting.

    If a warrior was wounded in the abdomen, one of the things that the healer did to determine if the wound penetrated the stomach/bowels was to feed them a soup similar to to the one above. If the odor could be smelled coming out through the wound, they knew that there was a puncture.
