I created this soup from a list of healthy super-foods to eat during flu/cold season to boost the immune system. It is simple to make and doesn't take much energy if you're already under the weather.

Cook's Note:

Although chicken broth is recommended during cold season, this is easily made vegan/vegetarian by using vegetable broth instead.
