Cabbage Soup with Turmeric and Ginger – #detox #flu

Cabbage Soup with Turmeric and Ginger is a light broth with soothing and healing flavors of turmeric and ginger. It’s especially useful for flu/cold or a cough.


Cabbage Soup with Turmeric and Ginger

Come spring and change in weather, many of us are down with bad cold or fever and that’s when this recipe of a warm Cabbage Soup with Turmeric and Ginger  comes most handy.

It’s made using basic ingredients, along with turmeric (natural antiseptic & healer), black pepper and ginger (both works wonders & soothes throat).

The warm light-golden broth relieves and soothes the itchy throat and also opens up your appetite which many of us lose after consuming medicines. It literally gets ready in 10 minutes or less.

You can call this one of your Eat-Clean recipes as well cause it’s easily digested, pretty low calorie and can be served to any age group.The broth can be made using plain water, stock or bouillon cube. ( I would recommend using just plain water or homemade stock as it’s more healthy)

This soup is pretty light hence it can be served as sides or you can even add some cooked rice, beans and other vegetables to convert it into a wholesome meal.
