Garlic Broth

 

Description

Garlic is an herb with remarkable medicinal properties – and it tastes great, too. It acts as a cardiovascular tonic, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels and inhibiting blood clotting. It’s also a powerful germicide and may even protect against some carcinogens. The smell of garlic cooking has extremely positive associations – it’s comforting and homey. If you eat garlic regularly (and with a good attitude), you won’t smell of it. It’s better for you in its natural state – raw or lightly cooked – rather than dried as powder or in capsules. Enjoy the smell, taste and healthful effects of the whole, fresh herb. Sip a warm mug of this flavorful broth as is or use it as a base for other soups.
