‘Tis the season…for inFLUenza, that is! “Feed a cold. Starve a fever.” Whatever the old saying is, it’s never good to starve oneself (think of how bad that would be on your metabolism or your appearance!), no matter how terrible you are feeling.
This vegetarian soup is super easy to make, tastes delicious, and the garlic and spinach should help you get back to your healthy-oxen self again in a jiffy! It may also help you rid of those pesky Vampire problems I hear you’ve been having in your town!
