3 bulbs of organic garlic
10 organic red onions
4 tablespoons organic cooking olive oil
1/2 pint of filtered water
1 low salt organic veg stock cube
1 teaspoon of marjoram
1 teaspoon of parsley
salt & pepper
Peel and chop the garlic and onions and place in a large pan on a medium heat with 4 tablespoons of organic cooking olive oil. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add all other ingredients and simmer for 10 - 15 mins, don't overcook it or you will lose the vitamins.
Blend the soup for 30 seconds so there still a few rough chunks of onion in the soup.
Serve alone or optionally with organic bread & organic vegan butter.
1. Red onions contain large amounts of flavonoids that are responsible for their reported antioxidant activity, immune enhancement, and anticancer properties.
2. Garlic contains allium sativum which is the secret component that means garlic has magical healing properties. In clinical studies, garlic appears to enhance the functioning of the immune system by stimulating certain cell types, such as macrophages, lymphocytes, natural killer cells, dendritic cells, and eosinophils, by mechanisms including modulation of cytokine secretion, immunoglobulin production, phagocytosis, and macrophage activation. Garlic can contribute to the treatment and prevention of pathologies such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disorders, gastric ulcer, colds and cancer.
3. Marjoram has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties.
4. Parsley is high in vitamin C and is anti-inflammatory, perfect for fighting colds.
