Comfort Soup

We’ve used ingredients previously tested by scientists in a study of noodle soup, which showed that many of these vegetables and herbs were effective in reducing inflammation associated with having a cold. Give it a try!

  • 1 small bunch fresh parsley, stalks finely chopped, leaves kept whole
