Big Jim’s House this morning was talking about different home remedies for the flu because Erin V is home sick. One listen sent us an email with a good ole’ Garlic soup cure…

Craig Smith emailed us with a great garlic soup recipe to cure all!

This soup is excellent, too.

We’ll make it even if we aren’t sick.

Garlic Soup:

10 large garlic cloves, well minced

½ cup olive oil

7 cups stock of choice (or 7 cups of water and 3 bouillon cubes)

1 can (15 ounce) tomato sauce

8 slices of French bread

2 eggs

Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Sauté the garlic in the olive oil, stirring continually. Do not allow the garlic to brown or burn.
  2. Add the stock (or water and bullion), tomato sauce and bread. Bring the soup to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Blend the soup until smooth
  4. Slowly add ½ cup of soup to 2 well-beaten eggs, stirring continually (temper the eggs), then slowly add the egg mixture back to the soup, stirring continually. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes, then serve.
