Sopa Magica: Green Plaintain with Garlic Chicken Soup

Submitted by JDiazAsper on 11/06/2010 – 6:50 pm5 Comments

I was a conference yesterday at around 3pm I started to shiver and get nauseous. 24 hours later, I am not sure if this is the flu, stomach virus or food poisoning but I feel terrible. I am sharing my sad tale because I have a soup that I make that is great when you have a terrible stomach.

I am not sure why but the sopa magica (magic soup) works but I think it’s the combo of green plantain and garlic provide some potent relief. It’s a very tasty soup even if you aren’t sick. It is very fast and easy to make. If you feel really bad start off with just some broth and potatoes in your bowl and save the rest for when you are better.

Drink lots of fluids and rest.


  • 2 breast chopped up
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 green plantain
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 6 cups of water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Brown chicken in oil with herbs and salt
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients

That is all! I hope you feel better!
