We love this recipe...its a great twist on your traditional chicken noodle soup. We mix up the vegetables sometimes adding edamame instead of peas. We add more ginger than the recipe calls for and a little extra salt. Yum!
Ginger Chicken Soup with Vegetables
Avocado, lime and cilantro give this chicken and rice soup its Mexican flair. It makes about 8 servings and is great for when you're having a crowd.
