"Made this soup for my son when he had tonsillitis and he totally loved it! Easy on his throat with fun flavours...I did add some crushed sun dried tomatoes for a fuller flavour."

"This is very easy to make and tasty. I think I would prefer it with veggie broth. The chicken broth was a bit overpowering. All and all good recipe."
