WHY Don’t They Cover Their Mouth Mending Soup
This soup is quick and easy during those times you are ready to crash (mommy’s take note!). It is surprisingly filling and with just enough flavour to enjoy without being overwhelming. With ingredients like onions (mood-boosting), turmeric (anti-inflammatory & antioxidant), garlic (antimicrobial), and tomatoes (vitamin C), this soup can help nourish you back to health on some of the worst germ exposures.

Instructions
  1. Using a soup pot, heat the stove on medium/ high and add oil of choice.
  2. Chop up 3 large onions. You can be sloppy here. I was tired and watery eyes were not my choice.
  3. Place the onions in the pot with whole cloves of garlic and sauté until the onions are starting to brown.
  4. Add the turmeric, garlic powder, ginger, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to the onions and garlic and stir the pot so the onions and garlic are coated in the spices. The soup should be fragrant. Don’t panic if there is some browning of the spice because that is nothing but delicious flavour. Continue to sauté for a minute or two.
  5. Shake and pour a can of full fat coconut milk into the pot. It will turn a beautiful yellow colour. Mix the coconut milk around picking up all that delicious spice that may be stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  6. Add in 1 tin of diced tomatoes and let soup simmer at medium/ low for about 5-10 minutes.
  7. Turn off the stove and let soup cool down before transferring it to a blender with lemon juice and blending for 3 minutes. Alternatively, if you have an immersion blender, that would be way better.
  8. Pour pureed soup into a bowl and remember that this illness too, shall pass.
Recipe Notes

Feel free to sprinkle some extra paprika on there. I definitely think it would look pretty. Unless of course you’re too sick to function.
