Serves 4

This is my favourite go to soup if I'm not feeling great and if you are feeling like you are coming down with or already have a horrible cold or flu, then this is the soup for you too.

Filled with all healthy ingredients to help boost your immune system and kick that cold to the curb, it's like a hot flu shot in a bowl!

  6. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer.
