Tomato Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup

I fully believe that chicken noodle soup has some magical healing powers, especially the spicy, clear your head, type of noodle soup my body was craving this week. Unfortunately I seem to have caught some early fall cold/flu and all I have wanted since is homemade chicken noodle soup. And since I had no desire to drive, I decided to create my own soup at home. I had no noodles on hand, so I ended up using low carb kelp noodles combined with some delicious ginger and spice to clear my head. This soup would work great with any type of noodle or even brown rice as well. Make up a big batch and freeze the leftovers for cool nights when you crave something warm and spicy.

    If you don’t have fresh ginger, how much dried ginger should you use?

      2 tsp. dried ginger should work.
