Garlic Broth

My friend Andrea had her tonsils removed on Friday and so I've been taking care of her over the weekend. One of the things she requested I make for her is something called Garlic Broth because when her dad had his tonsils removed he said it was the only thing that helped alleviate his sore throat. I made sure that Andrea was well stocked with popsicles, percocet, and Chloraspetic over the weekend just in case those remedies worked as well...they didn't. She said that the garlic broth was the only thing that soothed her throat. It's fairly simple to make:

1. 8 Cups Vegetable Broth
2. 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3. 1 whole head of Garlic
4. 1 Bay Leaf
5. 1/4 tsp dry Thyme
6. Pinch dry Sage
7. Salt to taste


- Peel and chop garlic
- Combine all the ingredients in a large pot
- Allow mixture to come to a boil
- Boil for 30 min
- Turn down heat and let simmer for 30 min
- Strain mixture and serve
