What is a go-to recipe that you cook when you feel a cold coming on?
My family eats a favorite chicken and rice soup at least once a month during the winter months when we are most likely to catch a cold.
Chicken soup is also the first dish I whip up when we feel a cold coming on. I add lots of onion, garlic and ginger and it's very soothing on a dry throat.
I recommend this easy recipe for chicken soup. It works for me!
Research has found that chicken soup is a worthy remedy for a cold or flu as it speeds up the expulsion of germ-laden mucous from the nasal passages – take a whole chicken and boil for about 5 minutes; add 3 chopped potatoes, 3 carrots, two onions and 3 garlic cloves; add salt, garlic salt, chicken seasoning to taste as well as a cup of barley; simmer for at least 3 hours; strip the meat from the bones and return meat to the liquid and drink as much of the soup as possible.

Dr. Andrew Weil's chicken broth (REAL chicken broth home made) and one WHOLE head of garlic peeled and chopped. 2 quarts chicken broth garlic, bring to boil, reduce and simmer for 20 minutes. Sieve out garlic. Drink a cup once an hour at the first sign of cold. Helps. Might even stop it! We use it regularly as a meal starter during flu and cold season.
