Sniffle season is upon us. Batten down those tissue boxes, stock up on spices and fresh herbs and make this warming soup to keep feeling good. If fresh herbs aren’t available, opt for dry seasonings instead. Whip up a large batch—it takes less than 10 minutes—and freeze leftovers in an ice tray. When you’re under the weather, defrost frozen soup cubes in a pot and freshen up the broth with any herbs you have on hand. You can even use this good-for-you mixture as a base for other soups!
