Bronchitis Broth

Bronchitis Broth created by melanie r.

I make this when I'm feeling fine so that when I'm not, it's in the freezer ready to go. This soup recipe comes from "Tonics" by Robert A. Barnett. As the original recipe states, "...the soup is delicious even if your breathing is fine."

  • Chop the onion, carrots, and celery into bite-size pieces.
  • Heat the oil in a soup pot over medium heat.
  • Stir in the onion, carrots, celery, and curry powder and cayenne. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very soft but not too brown.
  • Add the broth, bring to a boil, and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, chili peppers, salt, pepper to taste, cilantro, mint, and basil and parsley if using.
  • Cover the pot, bring to a boil, and reduce the heat to a high simmer.
  • Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until the garlic is soft but not mushy.
  • Fish out the chili peppers with a slotted spoon.
  • Add the lemon juice; taste for seasoning, and add more pepper if you like.
  • Serve hot and feel better!

    Garlic 2 whole garlic? Not just 2 garlic cloves. Sounds like a lot of garlic. Wanted to be sure before I made this.

    I made this tonight to serve my 92 y/o client who just lost his wife of 70 yrs. He is fighting bronchitis right now as well. He requested tomato soup for dinner. I used the above ingredients and tweaked it by adding tomatoes and fresh cream, substituting bone broth (beef, chicken, turkey) then pureed some of it. It was SO delicious! Thank you!

    I'm in love with this recipe. Everytime I've gotten a sinus infection or bronchitis in the last three years, I've made this soup. It's the cure all for me -- so much so that I don't even mind how long it takes to prepare!!
