Sick Soup or feel better soup is a soul warming vegetarian soup that helps you to feel better when sickness hits. The unique combination of ingredients in this best soup for a cold that will make you feel better!
What is the best soup to eat when sick?
This soup came about after years of watching my mom make it. She would ALWAYS make this soup when she didn't feel well.
It wasn't until I was an adult and had kids that I decided I should try it. Now I am wondering why I waited so long!
I personally feel this is the best soup for when you are feeling sick. Often we think chicken noodle soup when sick is the best, but this soup gives you something special too!
Obviously being vegetarian, I don’t eat chicken noodle soup - this vegetarian sick soup is perfect for me.
Does soup help a cold?
Yes it absolutely does! The warm broth and steam can help to loosen nasal congestion and ease symptoms to help you get better faster.
This soup has many names:

- Soothing Soup for Cold and Flu Season
Whatever you call it - it's the best soup for a cold!

This sounds so good. My mother used to make a version of this soup with chicken stock and zucchini.
I like the addition of zucchini, I'll have to try that!
