Virus Killer Soup

Flu season is here again! Some people swear to chicken soup to ease a cold, but I got my special weapon to fight the bugs - Virus Killer Soup!
The idea for this soup is taken from Patrick Holford book The New Optimum Nutrition Bible. He is not a chef , but a nutritionist.

This soup is so full of vitamin A, antibacterial garlic, anti inflammatory turmeric and ginger.
So cook a big pot and feed the family. And get those nasty flu bugs out of your life!

1 large onion, 3-6 cloves of garlic - chop and fry in coconut oil.
Add 4-6 chopped carrots, 2-4 sweet potatoes. You can also use a onion squash
Big knob of fresh ginger, 1 red chili, 1tsp turmeric, 1 tsp veggie stock powder and 1 tsp Thai spice mix (optional).
Add chopped red pepper and cover with water. Boil for 15-20 min. Then add tin of coconut milk boil another 5 min. Blitz with hand blender until smooth as velvet. Taste! add salt and pepper as needed.

Add some garlic croutons to get mare garlic inside you.
This soup will make you stronger and get over flu quicker.
