Pikante Hoendernoedelsop Resep

pikante hoender noedelsop

In die 12de eeu het die beroemde geneesheer en filosoof Maimonides kruiebaddens en hoendersop voorgeskryf vir die behandeling van verkoues.

Meer as 800 jaar later, bevestig die New England Journal of Medicine dat Maimonides reg was. Navorsers het bevind dat hoendersop ‘n ligte antibiotika en ontstuwingsmiddel is, en dat dit geïrriteerde lugweë streel. Tradisionele Chinese genesers maak vandag nog van hoendersop gebruik om verkoues te behandel.

Om vinnig ‘n genesende hoendersop te maak, sit hoender, uie, wortels, peper en ‘n knippie sout in ‘n pot met water. Bring tot kookpunt. Voeg ‘n brandrissie, peper en knoffel by. Kook stadig tot die hoender uitmekaar val. Skep die vet af en giet die sop deur. Voeg ‘n paar dun skyfies suurlemoen by en bedien stomend warm.

Hier is een van my gunsteling hoendernoedelsop resepte. Om die genesende krag van die sop te versterk sit ek ekstra gemmer, knoffel en brandrissie by.

Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

bowl of spicy chicken noodle soupIn the 12th century the great physician and philosopher Maimonides prescribed herbal baths and chicken soup as remedies for the common cold.

More than 800 years later, the New England Journal of Medicine confirmed that Maimonides was right. Researchers found that chicken soup was a mild antibiotic, decongestant and throat soother. Chinese healers to this day also use chicken soup to treat colds, though they do add some herbs, like ginseng, to their brew.

To make a healing chicken soup simply add chicken, onion, carrots, pepper and a pinch of salt to a pot with water. Bring to a boil. Add a chilli pepper and garlic. Boil slowly until the chicken is soft and tender. Skim off the fat and pour through a sieve. Add a few squirts of lemon juice and serve steaming hot. Sip slowly.

Here’s one of my favourite chicken noodle soup recipes. To boost its cold fighting properties I add loads of ginger, garlic and chilli pepper.
