We already gave you some tips and tricks to get rid of your hangover. But every country has its own traditional dishes to make the process go faster. We like to give you a taste of the international anti-hangover cuisine. This time we have a dish from the Czech Republic. It’s a dish that will give the people around you a bit of a hard time, but for sure you won’t have to worry about vampires either: česnečka. In English known as garlic soup.
Now first of all we would like to thank Eva, a great photographer and fellow blogger, who gave us the recipe. She mentioned than in Czech Republic it’s said that česnečka can even bring a corpse back to life. So you know this is excellent stuff after a hard night. Czechs in general can really handle their liquor. They have some great beers, but also some excellent hard stuff. From slivovice (plum liquor) to some mean kinds of absynthe. Everybody who ever visited Prague will agree that the nights can be hard and heavy, so you might need a little medicine in the morning. The recipe is pretty easy, so here we go…
2 tablespoons of real butter
1 chopped onion
6 cloves of garlic (cut up real good), although some real garlic lovers add even more.
6 cups stock (chicken or beef)
2 big potatoes (chopped up in small pieces)
Melt the butter in a saucepan and put in the chopped onions and garlic. After a few minutes add the stock and bring to a boil. Then add the potato pieces. Reduce the heat to a simmer and leave it like that till the potatoes are tender. Meanwhile you can bring the soup up to flavor with salt, pepper, marjoram and caraway. Serve the soup with fresh parsley on top.
Once at the table you can add the extra’s in your bowl. As you see it’s easy and effective. Na zdravi!
