I don't know about you, but when I'm ill there are few foods that sound good. When I was little, my mom would always fix me my favorite "sick foods": oatmeal (of course!), cinnamon toast, hot lemon water, and chicken noodle soup. There's just something healing about a bowl of chicken noodle soup...the spices, the smell, the hot broth on a sore throat. It's the perfect comfort food.
Well, I woke up with a sore throat this morning and have been loading up on Vitamin C and antioxidant rich foods. But I wanted to try to recreate my favorite sick food, minus the chicken, of course. I was pleasantly surprised how much this tasted like my childhood favorite! The combination of ingredients really worked well.
The next time you find yourself under the weather (which I hope is NOT SOON!), give this soup a try; I think you'll enjoy it.
