Garlic Soup is the best hangover cure

With summer just around the corner, most people are thinking cold beer, not hot soup.  But I’d like to share a recipe for a soup that does double duty.  First, it is a great way to prevent a cold.  If you feel a cold coming on, a bowl of this garlic soup will keep those cold viruses at bay.

Second, if you are recovering from a rough night of partying, this is the perfect hangover cure.  It’s a pretty easy recipe and doesn’t take long to make.  I’m not gonna tell you how to make it though because image imageyou can google česnečka or Czech garlic soup and find dozens if not hundreds of recipes like this one or this one.

One of the things that bother me about most recipes is the assumption that you know what the hell they are talking about when they use cooking terms.  For instance:

“Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent.”

What the fuck is translucent?

Okay next up is with so many versions of this recipe, which one is right for you?  Well when it comes to Eastern European Cuisine, never confuse homemade with healthy.  That doesn’t mean you cannot make it healthier.  If baking is a science, cooking is more of an art.  You can improvise.

You can use any type — chicken, beef or vegetable — of broth or stock you like or have on hand.  I think broth works better but stock is fine too. How do you tweak your favorite recipe? Tell us in the comments.
