SIP that SOUP for your SOUL!

I remember as a kid I used to love ordering soups in restaurants, not only at the start of my lunch or dinner but also in the end of my supper or brunch. Being a vegetarian I loved that colourful tangy Tomato Soup with crispy bread crumps and slight cream on top. Today however my taste differs and my soul relishes the Cream of Mushroom Soup. Growing up I learnt that soups were essentially appetizers and ought to be taken before a meal or the main course. I also learnt that this hot beverage can soothe your body and soul in the case of the most common cold. There are moments when we feel the whole world is having a cold, isn’t it! Any second person we run into would be down with this viral attack. And this ailment has ‘hazaar’ remedies handed down from our ancestral grannies and nannies to our Indian kitchens filled with spices …leave alone the doctors remedy! However nothing like yummy soups which contain some of the best immune-boosting and cold-treating ingredients.

Chicken Soup is one of the oldest remedies to battle a common cold, apart from Spicy Lentil and Chilly Soup. In addition Broccoli and Barley Soup is loaded with antioxidants which boost the immune system. One surefire way to find fragments is to read your work from the last sentence do my assignment to the first. Sweet Potato Soup with Thyme is delicious and a treasure trove of nutrients that help ward off colds. Then Curried Carrot Soup is rich in antioxidants and seasoned with famous flu-treating spices including ginger, curry, garlic and onion. Also Beet and Carrot Soup helps prevent colds and flu. Further, Curry Green Leaf Soup; Lemon Honey & Garlic Soup and Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup OR Thai Chicken Noodle Soup also fight cold and flu. And Cream of Tomato Soup and Hot and Sour Soup are also a winter warmer-upper!

One can’t forget Pepper Rasam which is typically a mix of Tur Dal, Pepper, Tamarind, Tomato and other Spices grinded together and cooked to make a clear-spiced liquid, which keeps us flu-free. In addition, Garlic Spinach or Palak Soup is so good and comforting. And Thai Coconut Soup is yet another perfect soup to deal with terrible head colds. To enjoy these soups, you definitely don’t have to be down with cold/ cough and flu. They are mouth-watering any good old day. In fact if your neighbour or a pal or an old aunt is sick, the best thing you can do for them is make them some “heart-warming soup for their soul”! They will certainly heal their way to health. And if you feel under-the-weather, you know what to do! Needless to say SOUPS taste far better than those boring SYRUPS …what say!
