Sick Soup or feel better soup is a soul warming soup that helps you to feel better when sickness hits. The unique combination of ingredients in this vegetarian soup for a cold will make you feel better!
Feel Better Sick Soup
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.
This soup has many names:
- Sick Soup
- Feel Better Soup
- Sick Day Soup
- Cold Busting Soup
- Soothing Soup for Cold and Flu Season
My sweet friend Chrystal at Gluten-Free Palate created a delicious and comforting quinoa soup that will make any day better! My friend Michelle over at My Gluten Free Kitchen has a Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup too! Same for my friend Chandice at This Vivacious Life! She loves gluten-free chicken noodle soup too!
Now I am not a doctor, so I can’t really make any medical claims. I can just tell you, I feel better after eating this soup. This is the soup to eat when sick, and I believe it is the very best soup for a cold or flu.
I think the simple (very simple) flavor and the warmth gives you just what you need.
This sick soup is a “no frills” type of soup. Simple and good!
For me, I adapted this Sick Soup to meet my vegetarian needs. I know that my mom has used bacon in her feel better soup before. So if you are a meat eater that is A-okay! Make it your own!
