Levantamuertos Soup Its January and that means a lot of people are fighting colds. Chicken soup is known as natural penicillin so I’d like to share my version from my husband’s homeland El Salvador. This soup is a normal Sunday midday delight and if served as an all-in-one meal with a glass of vitamin-c packed orange juice is sure to cure the winter ails. Place the following ingredients in a large pot. Peel and chop vegetables first unless noted. 1 chicken cut up 1/2 cup rice 2 yucca roots- found in Hispanic and produce markets 2 plantain bananas (do not peel this!) 2 small yellow potatoes 1 onion 2 carrots 2 stalks celery 1 zucchini 1 yellow squash 2 garlic cloves minced salt to your taste Next add enough water not only to cover the ingredients but more as well. Bring to a boil. Add 1/4 c chopped fresh cilantro leaves. Let the soup simmer for one hour or until the vegetables are cooked. Wishing everyone healthy winter months ahead.
