This is one of my family's favorite soups. It's easy to make and every bite is packed with protein, vitamins and minerals that are soothing to the digestive system. It's the perfect soup to eat when recovering from an illness or surgery.
I serve it blended and creamy, not chunky. It's a meal in itself or a filling side dish.

That's it! You've made a delicious, healthy soup that nourishes the Lungs, Kidneys, and Stomach! It keeps in the refrigerator for about 3 days in an airtight container.
Another tip: To make an easy one-pot dinner, add chunks of rotisserie chicken to the finished soup.
