Chicken Soup to the Rescue
A secret weapon for the common cold—a delicious prescription
I always add dried shiitake mushrooms to the broth, I have added astragalus root pieces (a folk remedy for colds and upper respiratory infections) and ginger. The secret here is in the broth. I freeze all my mushroom stems and leek greens from previous meals. When I'm ambitious, I add a whole chicken, but that takes longer, so lately I've been adding chicken pieces. For this soup, I add a whole leg (breast is fine) and three chicken wings.

WELCOME TO SUNNY COVE CHEF
Thank you for visiting my blog. My two passions are cooking and traveling. Traveling exposes me to a wide variety of food and experiences. I walk around cities looking for markets, restaurants, bakeries, shops, you name it, and if it is related to food you will find me there, tasting, smelling, talking to vendors, and having a great time.
