Ancient Chinese Secret Soup a/k/a Healing Soup
My best friend's Chinese-American Mom made this whenever one of her six kids fell sick so we call this "Ancient Chinese Secret Soup." It has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties and the spice really opens up your sinuses when you're stuffed up. I think it's important that your stock is high quality (mine is an unsalted brown chicken stock that has been simmered overnight in a 200 deg oven with bones and de-fatted--very healthy with intense roasted chicken flavor). However, if you have nausea and GI upset, use a light broth and 2 chicken breasts instead and lose the spicy stuff. Ginger is excellent for nausea.
