First of all, hello cold and flu season! This is an excellent soup for boosting your immune system and who doesn’t love soup as the weather turns colder and the days become darker?


I have recently learned I am battling some autoimmune “issues” and this soup is perfect for helping to lower inflammation while strengthening the immune system <3


Make a bunch & freeze some for those busy nights!


This soup has a little bite to it from the crushed red pepper (which I LOVE), but you can omit if you prefer a more mild flavor.


We actually picked up an organic rotisserie chicken last night when I made this. I love easy 🙂 Using fattier parts of the chicken like the darker meat is a GOOD thing as those parts offer even more nutrients! Go for it!

  • 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
