Go Away Summer Flu Broth

Today I don't feel that good.

The summer stomach flu is the worst.

It stinks when it's warm and sunny outside and you feel horrible.

1 - 2 qrt. low sodium chicken stock
1/2 - 1 c. chopped peeled onion
1 - 2 cloves chopped crushed garlic
1 T. chopped fresh ginger
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper
1/4 - 1 tsp.  fresh lemon juice

Peel, rinse, chop onions and garlic, set aside.

Rinse and chop ginger.

Rinse lemon and roll on a clean kitchen counter for a few seconds.

This'll get a lot of juice out of the lemon. Cut lemon in half and set aside.

In a pot combine ingredients, bring to a boil for a few minutes. 

Squeeze some lemon into broth.

Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 20 - 30 min.

Ladle broth into a mug.

Serves 4 - 8.
