Leek, shallots and garlic contain sulfides, which act as a "natural antibiotic" that fights infections. Additionally, the trace element zinc, which is also found in this dish, helps to strengthen the immune system.

If you don't want to cook with alcohol, you can replace it with a mixture of vegetable broth and white grape juice or alcohol-free wine, and season with some lime juice.
