Greek style soup to boost your immunity like a Greek god

About

Boost this immunity soup like a Greek God. This quick easy soup is simple and rich in taste, with a touch of lemon, very refreshing. This is not a thick type of soup, its a high source of fluids, but of course you can make it thick if you like just by adding more veggies. Its an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin C. Great if you are on a diet, filling after a couple bowls. Better for you then canned soup. Less sodium. You can easily make it with very simple ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge! I love soup soup and I will be posting lots of recipes. Hope you enjoy!
