Here in Central Oregon it has been reeeaallllyy cold, snowy and icy lately. That makes me want to eat soup. Lots and lots of soup. Warm, delicious, nourishing nutrient dense and packed with flavor soup.
I was feeling creative, so I wanted to make up my own soup recipe. I thought it would taste pretty good, but was happily surprised at how amazingly good it turned out. Both of my sons loved it (which is saying a whole lot for the one who immediately said he wasn’t hungry when I told him what was for dinner) and my husband said it was the best soup I have ever made.
Besides being delicious, this recipe is great for staying healthy in the winter.
Broth or stock: Depending on how it's made and what it’s made from, is full of minerals, amino acids, collagen and gelatin. People have been using it to aid and heal digestion for centuries. Since most of our immune system is along our digestive tract, it makes sense why it has long been a folk remedy for colds and flu.
