Bad Cold Soup

This is my favorite Soup when I have a bad cold. I swear this Soup works better than any patent medicine to restore health. Bad Cold Soup is perfect when you feel hungry and you are too sick to cook. Try it. You have nothing to lose but your stuffy nose and your bad cough.

Portugese Bread and Garlic Soup

4 and 1/2 cups Water
1 teaspoon Olive Oil (optional)
4 to 6 cloves Garlic, cut in pieces
1 teaspoon Salt
4 to 6 slices (6 ounces) whole grain Bread, torn into small pieces
Pepper, to taste
Parsley, minced, quantity to taste
1/4 cup of of Provolone or Mozzarella Cheese (optional)

Bring the Water and Olive Oil, if using, to a boil. Add Garlic, Salt and Bread and simmer until very soft (about 5 minutes). Mash the soup with a spoon or fork. Return briefly to a boil. Season generously with ground Black Pepper. Adjust salt to taste. Sprinkle with minced Parsley, stir and serve. If you have it, some crumbled toasted Nori will not hurt either.
