I had the Man Cold today so I raided through my pantry to see what I could combine to make me feel better. The result was something that smells delicious even with a stuffed up nose, and is just spicy enough for me to forget my troubles. It's got a few different flavours that you can taste individually and enough chewy bits to be entertaining. I made this as I went. This was really easy to make (big plus when you're sick) and a bonus in that most people will have this sort of thing in their pantry. The herbs are estimates only and I suggest adding the amounts to taste, using my estimates as a guide.

This was not bad at all, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I found this to be more of a broth than a soup, so I added some matzoh balls to it. I did like the chickpeas and the ritoni in the soup, that was a great addition.
