1-2 garlic cloves peeled and chopped (you can also use a garlic press).
6 cups Chicken bone broth
Place ginger, onions, garlic and mushrooms (if you choose) in a pot and add a small amount of broth.
Simmer until ingredients are softened.
Add the rest of the stock and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 20-30minutes. Sip on broth throughout the day and feel better!
This broth/soup can be stored in the fridge easily for a few days. You can also eat the ginger pieces if you like for some extra heat. Feel free to add some other vegetables if you desire to make it more of a meal. But be careful not to add too much salt as salt tends to bring things deeper into the body and this is more about pushing out the cold virus. Options:
Add in dried or fresh mushrooms (shitake, maitake, etc.) to add an extra boost for your Qi.
Add in 4-5 pieces of Astragalus (Huang Qi) to the broth as it is simmering to boost your immune system and energy (qi).
