November 6, 2015
Feeling under the weather? Before you resort to any over-the-counter medications or a pricey doctor’s visit, try one of these single-serve soups. Made right in the bowl you’ll sip it out of, they’re simple to create and contain cold- and flu-symptom-fighting ingredients like ginger, garlic and strong spices.
Lemon, Honey & Garlic Soup
Add 1 Tbsp. each of finely diced yellow onion, celery and carrots; 1 minced clove garlic; 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice and 2 tsp grated lemon zest to a soup bowl. Cover with 1 ½ cups hot vegetable broth and drizzle with honey. Stir to combine.
Curry Green Leaf Soup
Add ½ cup finely shredded spinach or kale, 1 Tbsp. finely diced red onion, 2 tsp curry powder and ¼ tsp cayenne to a soup bowl. Cover with 1 ½ cups hot vegetable broth. Stir to wilt greens.
