A group of researchers at the University of Washington have discovered that garlic is 100 times more potent than the 2 most commonly used antibiotics in the treatment of various diseases. Traditional garlic soup can be of great help against flu or cold viruses:
First, preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Cut off the top of 5 garlic bulbs and spread them on a piece of aluminum foil. Sprinkle with a little olive oil and roast for an hour and a half. When it’s ready, take the garlic out of the oven and let it cool.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter in a pan, add 2 large diced onions and cook for 10 minutes. Once your garlic is roasted, crush it with a fork and add it to the pot. Then add a handful of fresh herbs (parsley, thyme, bay leaf), 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped and 6 cups of clear chicken broth.
Reduce the heat to low, add 3 cups stale bread diced and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the cubes of bread turn soft. Mix your soup until smooth. You can use a diving blender. Put the creamy mixture back on the heat and add 1 cup sour cream. Season to taste.
