veggie cold tea

I make this for myself when I get under the weather, esp in the winter months.

  • 2 qt water or vegetable broth
  • handful of shredded carrot
  • handful of winter greens (collards, kale, mustard)
  • salt and 12 black peppercorns
  • 1/2 of a ginger root, sliced thinly
  • one whole lemon
  • 1 clove garlic per serving

Heat first five ingredients together in a saucepan. Squeeze juice of lemon into brothy mixture, then toss in both lemon halves. Bring to a boil. Pour broth and veggies into a mug, then add a freshly grated garlic clove (I use a metal ginger grater) into the mug. Drink up, and feel better.
