I-Don’t-Want-A-Cold Soup

I really, really don’t want to be coming down with a cold.  I’ve made a soup with many ingredients that are praised for their germ-fighting abilities.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 celery stalk, finely sliced
  • 1 fennel stalk, finely sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, finely sliced
  • 1/3 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups stock or broth (M made turkey stock from the Thanksgiving turkey, but you can use whatever stock or broth you have on hand)
  • 1/4 cup red quinoa
  • 4 drops jalapeno sauce (a little more would be fine, I just went overboard last time and decided to take a more conservative route this time)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon black lava salt (it’s coated in activated charcoal)
  • 1 teaspoon sea lettuce flakes

To Do:

Saute the carrot, celery, onion, fennel, and garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil for about five minutes.  Add everything else and bring to a boil.  Turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Mmm… it’s good and it FEELS good!
