Garlic Ginger Soup Recipe
It's that time of the tear between COVID and flu season. Soups , chilli, and hearty meals are in season.
This soup is a version my fitness friends would recommend to cook if fighting a cold. It is a common go to meal when sick with flu like symptoms . The sriracha gives it enough heat to help clear up that congestion for a bit as well. According to WebMd, "Garlic is widely recognized for its ability to fight bacteria, viruses, fungi, and even parasites."
