When you have a cold or flu, you crave something comforting and this is the soup to hit the spot. It is filling, warming and is said to have healing properties – not just mine (although, it is THAT good), but chicken noodle soup in general. I started to feel like I was coming down with a cold, so I made a batch of this up and the next day I was feeling fine again.
I add plenty of garlic and ginger to mine because ginger is a natural pain and fever reducer and a mild sedative, so it can help you to rest when you are feeling unwell. Garlic also stimulates the immune system. Add in all the vegetables as well and you have a meal that will make you feel a little bit better at least.
I never find that soup is enough of a meal without adding some carbs like bread to it, which is why I love chicken noodle soup so much, as the carbs are all right there in the bowl. Now, the big question is, do you use a spoon, fork or chopsticks to eat it?
