No, I don't have H1N1. No need to close your browser and disinfect your internet connection. I don't really have the flu at all, but a few weeks ago I felt a bit under the weather. Soup seemed the only thing I wanted, and this one left me feeling much better. It's made in the tradition of all great soups in our house - thrown together from the pantry.
1 can condensed tomato soup
2 cans of water
2 garlic cloves
1/2 inch fresh ginger, grated
1 red banana pepper
oregano, salt, and black pepper to taste
1/2 cup (dry) Ditalini pasta, or other small shape
1 can garbanzo beans/chickpeas
2 carrots, sliced
two handfuls of fresh spinach
- Combine soup and water in a large pot. Add garlic, ginger, pepper, and seasonings. Boil.
- Once it comes to a rolling boil, add pasta and cook until almost done. Add chickpeas.
- Once pasta is al dente and the chickpeas are hot, add spinach and stir to incorporate. Cook another minute, remove from heat, and enjoy!
