Fall is barely here on the Central Coast, but I’ve already come down with my first cold of the season – I’m sure 20+ hours on multiple airplanes and sleep deprivation had something to do with it. Yesterday morning I woke up hurtin’, and I knew the only thing that would help would be a big bowl of soup.
I threw this together using the vegetables we had in our fridge (hence the baby carrots – use regular carrots if you can), so keep in mind that it is very flexible. This was quick to make, and it was just the thing I needed. The almost-raw garlic is a great cold fighter!
The positive thing? The first cold of the season means the first soup post of the season! Enjoy it!
