  1. What herbs can we substitute?

  2. what do I substitute for meat and fish?

    • There are many ways to change up this soup without meat. Saute some mushrooms and onions then add that to the broth. Include a can of diced tomatoes if you like that flavor. One way to look at it is by flavor, the other is essence. Chicken soup has traditionally been associated with helping the body overcome colds.
