so spicy and warm and hydrating and cheap and warm
I like this soup a whole lot because it makes me feel well
[specifically, after eating a lot of sugar through the holidays and basically the entire year]
you can adjust all the spices to your own liking, but I made mine very spicy.
lots of cayenne and garlic, plus all that warm water, helps my headcold chill out for a while.
and isn't there something about garlic and spices reducing your risk of cancer?I think probably so.
or doing something else quite magical.you see, this is a magical soup
chop an onion into comfortably-sized pieces and drop it in a big saucepan,
with a bit of water and a small glug of olive oil
spoon one or two large tablespoons of garlic [I have minced garlic in the refrigerator. you can use garlic powder if it's an emergency]
add a cup of water
then curry powder, ginger, cayenne pepper, salt
allow the onion to soften considerably, five minutes or so
chop up two or three carrots and throw them in
add more water; you be the judge of how much water here
let this boil, then turn it down to simmer for an hour
[enjoy your new years soup while writing up some beautiful plans for 2011]
