Get Well Soup (recipe)
Return to Get Well Soup (recipe)
To make this soup you will need the following:
First bring the liquids to a boil on your stove. While that's going, go ahead and mince the ginger/onion and chop the mushrooms and celery. If you're afraid of dirt, rinse 'em.
Lower heat to a simmer. Toss in onion and garlic. Place your head over the pot and inhale deeply, the vapors will cleanse your sinuses. After you've done a few good hits of that, add the celery. Keep breathing.
Add mushrooms. Breathe more of that vapor.
Let the pot simmer for at least an hour or two. Think about how you're pretty much over feeling sicky and ready to be healthy again—maybe you feel well enough already that you won't really need this soup? Too late now!
Now the end throw in the ginger. Take a couple of more breathfuls of that good vapor (If you are using a very large pot, it may help to place a towel over your head to prevent the vapor from escaping. Don't drip snot into the pot!)
Enjoy and get well soon!
*a number of people have inquired about some of the measurements for this recipe, wondering what the yield should be. This recipe is meant for one individual to be fed; whether that individual cannot finish their soup in one sitting or not is up to them; if one is really sick then having this twice in one day is a good idea. So, yes you need to use a hell of a lot of ginger. This is an (inexact) medicinal recipe.
