This soup is a version of one my mom would cook for any of us that had a cold.  It is now one of my go to meals when anybody in my house is sick.  Many cultures over the years have used ginger and garlic to fight illness.  The sriracha gives it enough heat to help clear up that congestion for a bit as well.  I always end up adding a ton of sriracha because I love the heat.  The soup comes together pretty quickly and is very easy to make.  Hope you enjoy it!

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $1.15
