Honey Iz Sick Soup

A narly chest cold is menacing the streets of Quito, Ecuador. It can turn any healthy human into a sickly, bed ridden, phlegm coughing creature. Luckily, this special cure seems to help..."honey I'm sick soup". Make this lethal concoction as a preemptive strike or to resuscitate any weakened immune system.

Happy germ crusading y buen provecho!

Recipe for Honey I'm Sick Soup
1 badass onion (purple is more lethal - chopped)
4-6 cloves "vampire don't go there" garlic (skinned and whacked with a knife)
1 knob of ginger (skinned and whacked)
2 bay leaves
1 fat cube of magical chicken bouillon (maggi is the best)
1 large "don't mess with me" tater (chopped)
2 b-carotene packed carrots - medium (chopped)
1 large "good for you" uber red tomato (chopped)
1 lightening green pepper (daintily sliced)
a couple handfuls of curly noodles
several good dashes of dried tarragon
salt y pepper to taste

In a good healing pot, add olive oil. Throw in onions, garlic, ginger. Sautee for 5 mins. Add tomato, tater, carrot and green pepper. Cook for 10 mins on low medium. Add the cube of magical bouillon and bay leaves. 4 cups of water (or more if needed). Cover and cook for 25 mins on low. Once the veggies are soft, add a handful of noodles and tarragon. Final step, salt and pepper to taste. (Tip: if the tomato is slightly overpowering...slightly sour, add a teaspoon of sugar, that will even out the taste.)

Verdict: Ah, I'm feelin much better...the honey says. 

AND mo better with homemade bread...
