Immune Boosting Soup
By Emma Sutherland, Studio You


Chicken – perfect protein to support your production of disease fighting immune molecules
Onion – helps to break down mucous
Garlic – a natural antibiotic
Ginger – stimulates circulation enabling more efficient clearing of toxins
Chilli – high in vitamin C
Enoki mushrooms – have properties that are anti cancer so can help fight any nasty bugs
Risoni – a great carbohydrate source for energy
Lemon – uplifts mood
Parsley – high in iron which stimulates immunity
Goji berries – traditionally used in China in convalescence, specifically in broths

Use your intuition on quantities. Just put on some music, dance and put some love into it!
Chicken thighs 600gr
Chicken stock 1 litre (I always have some premade in the freezer)
1 brown onion – sliced finely
6 cloves garlic – sliced finely
1 inch fresh ginger – sliced finely
1 -2 chilli – sliced finely, ensure you add the seeds for their heat
200grams enoki mushrooms
80 grams quinoa
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
1 tablespoon Goji berries

Sauté onions, garlic, chilli, ginger until soft. Add chicken thighs and brown them. Pour in your stock and simmer. Once chicken is cooked take it out and shred with a fork. Add chicken back in with quinoa, Goji berries and Enoki mushrooms. To serve, place lemon zest on the bottom of your bowl. Add soup and top off with lemon juice and parsley.
