    Caryn Dalton's Note:

    I serve this soup on a blustery winter's night to warm the soul and body, but most of all, we use it whenever someone is feeling ill in our house. I find that it is easier on the tummy than chicken noodle soup and despite how weird it sounds, it tastes fantastic. Couldn't be easier, either. Try it, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a medium stockpot, bring chicken broth to a simmer.
    2. 2
      Slowly stir in cornmeal and simmer, stirring often for about 30 minutes or until smooth with a creamy texture.
    3. 3
      This also makes a great soup-base for other soups. You can make it as thin or as thick as you like by adjusting the amount of cornmeal.
    4. 4
      This soup is bland until you add your favorite spices or seasonings. We start with it like this -- perfect for sick days.
