RECIPE: Immune-Boosting Ginger, Thyme & Pea Soup

Seasonal, easy to make and with big immune-boosting benefits, this soup provides plenty of plant protein, as well as important compounds that help to fight off illness and infections (and possibly COVID19….) Whether you’re self-isolating or reading this at a time when there’s no threat of illness of a pandemic proportion, this is a great go-to early Spring soup that helps prevent Springtime colds and sinus blockages too…. 

INGREDIENTS

Serves 4-6 

  • 2 courgettes
  • ½ packet of frozen peas
  • 1 inch piece of grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 sprig fresh time of oregano
  • Pinch of salt & pepper
  • 1 + ½ litres of stock
  • Tsp coconut oil

METHOD

  1. Heat the oil, ginger and garlic in a large pan
  2. Chop the courgette and add it to the pan along with the peas
  3. Stir to coat in oil and cook until the courgette has softened
  4. Add the stock and fresh herbs, and simmer for 15-20 minutes
  5. After simmering, turn down the heat and add the coconut milk, salt and pepper and more dried herbs if desired. Oregano has very powerful antiviral effects and works well as a natural antibiotic too – without the antibiotic side effects.
  6. Bring the pan to a light simmer again for a few minutes, then turn off the heat.
  7. Allow the soup to cool enough so you can blend it with a hand blender or larger blender
  8. Optional: Sprinkle with immune-boosting turmeric & black pepper and cayenne to rid the body of any sinus blockages.

Enjoy!
